You've probably read about all that they are going to tell you! When I went with dh (nearly 5 years ago now) they just showed us round a delivery suite and the pool room (which I ended up using). Lots of talk about breast feeding and a video of an actual birth which made dh squirm! Showed you the tools which they might have to use on you, eg forceps, tool for breaking waters, etc. Pain relief options - what you need to know about certain drugs.
Also ran through a cs just in case of emergency and what they would do. Pretty basic stuff really, but put the wrong way and it could scare you off!
Every hospital is different and has a different way of showing mums & dads around. Second time around - no need to bother with these classes as you've already done it once before!
