I was reading this article on Kate Hudson's labor and delivery of her son with Matt Bellamy: http://www.digitalspy.com/celebrity/news/a405032/muse-star-matt-bellamy-on-kate-hudson-childbirth-it-freaked-me-out.html 
He describes the birth as "horrible" and wondered why nobody warned him about how gory it would be.
DH went with me to the classes. Oddly, no videos were shown. He didn't want to see our son being born because I guess he was afraid of how "horrible" it would be. He wound up watching, and he even cut the cord (which he did not want to do, but my doctor handed him the scissors so he really didn't have a choice).
Was your husband OK with the "ick" factor of childbirth?
