That was something I really worried about during my pregnancy. We recently relocated and I didn't have anyone local who could watch my children. My Mom was planning to come for the birth, but I knew it was still a possibility that she might miss it. Our plan was that my husband would attend to the kids and I would have my midwife and her assistant to help me if my Mom wasn't there. As it turned out, my labor was from 9pm to 8:30am and my Mom was here so we had all bases covered. I think it would be great if you can find someone to come to the house and be with them. For me, my husband was such a huge support during labor that if he hadn't been there by my side at all times after I hit the later stages it would have been so much more difficult.
