The husband is a wife's assistant and often as a decision maker both during pregnancy and childbirth, therefore the husband also needs to get the same information as pregnant women. According to Lutfiatus Sholihah (2004), during pregnancy, the husband must also be invited to prepare to welcome the arrival of the child, because not all husbands are ready to mentally wait for his wife who is in pain, sometimes they even panic and can not calm the wife who was giving birth.Based on a preliminary study conducted that the class of pregnant women is only given to mothers without involving the husband or partner. Preliminary study data also shows that there are still many pregnant women who come to health workers during the fake labor phase.
