What can I do to help my wife during the delivery of our first child? She is due in the next few weeks, and I would like to have some ideas of how I can help her through delivery so that I don't feel like I am standing around doing nothing.

We are having our first baby. Yay! He is due in the next few weeks. We have had birthing classes and I have witnessed childbirth before as part of EMT training, so I know what to expect of the end stages of the process. But what I am looking for are things that I can do to help her and support her through the entire delivery.
So please, what did your partner do to help you that you appreciated? Or what did you do that seemed to be appreciated? What did you bring with you that helped or was useful?
Thanks to all. I am really looking forward to meeting my son.
