    Thanks for all the replies

    I'm getting some ideas of what I need from him.

    I think I may write it down.

    He's totally supportive in every other way, both before and after birth but its just DURING labour and birth that I need him to try things and help me remember to focus etc.

    He did absolutely everything and more before and after birth, I think I just need to write down specific things he could try.

    He needs to buy you a diamond bracelet for all the hard work you do to provide him with the most beautiful baby.

    Thanks but diamonds aren't going to help me push a baby out....

    He provides us with a home, food, love and his attention (unlike some dads).

    If he's anything like my DH, he's prob completely unaware of anything he can do.
    My first I had an epi, so there really wasn't much to do other than get water and talk to me.
    But the second it went so quick, I was on my knees over the back of the bed grunting like something possessed, he was so completely overwhelmed by the different labours, he really just stood there and kept out of the way and waited for the bub to pop out haha. (Pretty sure if I had of been holding his hand, I would of broken it! For days later I felt like I had done and extreme weight lifting session.)
    Maybe if you have a midwife lined up for labour, get her to have a quick chat to him about things he could do??
    Or if your in the right mind set on the day, ask them then??????
