First off you have been given some good advice above! You will know what to do without being guided by doctors. My midwife only a few times told me to push her fingers out when I was getting exhausted. It was mainly to just help me along, not tell me how to do it.

You'll know what position is the most comfortable for you. Just have a bunch of towels ready, receiving blankets and a bulb syringe like you said. I'd also make sure you have a heating pad handy so you can place it on baby (with a receiving blanket over it) to keep them warm.

Do you have a local fire house by you? If you do I'd maybe keep their # handy
