as far as the mess, my midwives did ALL of that. My house was cleaner when they left than before the birth.
To be totally honest, during my second birth (planned birth center) I started wanting a homebirth. And I had similar concerns, along with the concern of finding a new provider halfway through my pregnancy. I ended up going to the birth center. My first thought after the birth and we settled in was "Why the HECK did I bother coming here??". The only difference was that I had to get in the car and drive somewhere while in labor, then get back in the car and drive home after a few hours. It just seemed pointless and annoying to do that.
I'm not sure on how to convince your hubby if you do want a homebirth, but that's just my perspective.
