Why is your DH opposed to it? Is it safety concerns or something else? There is a sticky on this board that has lots of good info about getting DH on board.
My midwives told me that they have Pitocin and some herbs and other medicines on hand in case of hemorrhaging. They said they have had a few women majorly hemorrhage, but never had to transfer them to a hospital. They can do an emergency transfer if necessary though. But what they have on hand is pretty much the same as what the hospital has on hand for hemorrhages.
Gestational diabetes I have no idea about since I haven't had it. I would look into following the GD nutrition plan from the start of getting pregnant though.
As for pain management, there are lots of natural ways to get pain relief (massage, relaxation techniques, showers/baths, etc).
