As other said, I'm not too concerned with making a mess...The carpet can be cleaned. and as for the bed (and keeping it clean, should that be the place you end up birthing), My sister's midwife instructed her to do the following; Cover the bed with a large, water proof tarp, followed by an old fitted sheet, and then repeat (so 2 tarps, and 2 fitted sheets). The reason for having two of each was, if one gets dirty part way through labor(like water breaks), you can just remove the first layer, and quickly be ready with a clean bed!
My sister didn't have any old sheets that she wouldn't mind getting stained, so she went to a local thrift store, and found a few inexpensive sets.
