Dads of MeFi- what do you wish you had been told before your wife/partner went into labor?

My wife and I are expecting our first child next month. We're doing a standard hospital delivery, and are hoping to avoid medication (epidural, etc.) if at all possible. A doula will be there. I'm prepared (I think) for the shock of seeing a baby squeeze out of her vagina.
What are the little (or not-so-little) things you, as the male partner, wish you knew going into labor? Shower me with your collective wisdom!
