i would HIGHLY recommend going to prenatal classes. they teach you about a whole lot more than infant care. for you, you would LOVE the information on the actual labor and delivery! you are going to need it - and this is really the best way for your husband to be involved and get good information about what is going to happen.
also, since you have a great educational background, you can offer other insights and information to the other moms and dads in class.
so please please go to the classes, if not for your sake, for the sake of other mothers and fathers in the room.
you really have to learn about labor and delivery and the process and whats going to happen, what its going to look like, what options are available for pain releif, etc. this is really the hospitols time to educate young mothers and fathers to be about their process and the things they have available to mothers. you can even tour the maternity section of the hospitol. the less mystery about the whole process, the more calm you will be about labor and delivery.
after i had my son, there was one lady down the hall giving birth and having a HORRIBLE experience, she didnt take the classes. she thought she knew enough that she wouldnt need them - but during labor and delivery she could not focus on the doctor, nurses, or any of their advice. she didnt know enough about the process and what was happeneing to her, so she was terrified. dont be that girl...
