I definitely know what you mean! My midwife was equipped to handle meconium, I think Dane actually had some (he was a week past my due date) but I don't think he swallowed any. My birth with my first son ended the way it did (c-section) because of a cascade of interventions.

As for transferring, I know some women choose to have a back up doctor. I am not sure exactly how to go about it if you'd not disclose your plans of home birth or if you would. We never bothered with one because of the hard time we had finding a doctor in the first place to take me as a VBAC. If I were to transfer I would have seen whatever doctor was on call, they couldn't deny me medical attention so I never saw any reason to a back up nor did I want lectures because of how I was choosing to birth.

Good luck and that is great your husband is 100% on board! It took me awhile to convince my husband haha.
