Diesal - I also have the same concern, if the induction doesn't go smoothly, I may end up giving birth the next day when my husband is not around. It is not like he can't get off work but he thinks he doesn't need to.
Another thing is I am also at risk for PND. I am not how much emotional support I will need or not need, DH is actually one of the reasons I am at risk due to relationship issues. Now when I think about it, it may be better off if he is not around at all. But the thought of going to labor by myself is extremely frightening.
