Would you be prepared for an unassisted birth?

I have not been in the past (like, with supplies, I have always been mentally prepared). This time I will be prepared w/ some supplies-ish but not full blown uc prepared.

I always have my birth supplies on hand at 37 weeks and my midwife only lives 10 minutes away so I doubt I would have any issues. DH is a big help in labor so if something happened and baby came that fast I know he would do great.

We were prepared because my labors have gotten shorter each time, but I think it was still shocking.

I'm not sure I'd be mentally prepared to do it alone, lol. But yeah, I feel we could. I know my DP would be prepared as he is a 911 dispatcher and does it over the phone all the time!! lol!!
