Can husband miss the first childbirth education class?

Hi, all,
I am a FTM and we are about to start our first childbirth education class. However, my husband just found out he has a work function that he's not sure he can get out of and it interferes with the first (and only the first) of the six classes. Can anyone tell me what you did at your first class? Am I going to regret going by myself and having him miss the first class? TIA!

    If its only the 1st one, no big deal.  There were SO that missed during our classes.  The last two they highly encouraged your birthing partner to be there, but that was just our class experience. 
  • FWIW there are a TON of informative childbirth education videos on youtube. If you're nervous about him missing information you can always have him utilize some of those.
