In brief: Educate yourself
Many couples enjoy taking a prenatal childbirth class.
There are so many changes both physical and emotion during pregnancy. Delivery can be scary too. Classes help you prepare for what is to come. It can help with anxiety. You will learn what to expect during the delivery and help you prepare to take care of your little one. Classes also help get the dad involved. I highly recommend attending.
