In my experience, dads-to-be don't always do as much research into labor, birth, and babies as mamas do. Some dads do of course, just not many I know.

That said, one of the major reasons to attend childbirth classes is to provide dads with a crash course in what's coming. If your guy is trying to avoid childbirth classes, here's a list of reasons why he should attend. Print it out and share it with him.
  • Learn what your partner is going through during her pregnancy.
  • Know what to expect when your partner goes into labor, and the signs you should watch for.
  • Find out how your baby is developing.
  • Get tips about how to prepare your home for your baby.
  • Learn about ways to help your partner get through labor - massage, breathing exercises, and more.
  • Find out what happens during a typical birth and also what could happen if there's a problem.
  • Learn about common labor medications and procedures.
  • Start building ideas about how to be a good parent.
  • Your partner will feel like you're a team - it's hard to be pregnant and not be in this together (from the woman's side). Trust me, you will be far more adored, the more involved you are.
  • Your baby deserves your full attention, even before he arrives. Studies show that the more involved a father is with his kids, the healthier and happier kids are.
Best of all, being involved from the get-go, can help you to feel more connected to your baby. It's not always easy as the dad, because you're not carrying the baby, but you do play a major role in this baby's world. Don't wait until your baby arrives to start connecting. Another cool option in addition to childbirth classes is Daddy bootcamp. No time for childbirth classes - here’s how to cheat
