In brief: Knowledge

Just knowing where you are going and what the rooms look like can allay fears and decrease anxiety.
For many women this is their first time in a hospital and they may be frightened.

In brief: Familiarization

One the big day the last thing you need is to be confused about where to go, how to sign in, etc.
Touring the hospital allows you and your partner to take a dry run of getting to the hospital, parking the car, finding labor and delivery, etc.

totally agree with the above answer , all of my pts are required to go to the hospital at least once before they deliver so u know how to get there and where to go and to make sure u like the hospital because if u have any issues the time to discuss them is way before u go into labor
