We had our UC but we had a back-up homebirth midwife as well as a completely different back-up hospital midwife and OB - contingency plans a b and c. Our homebirth back-up was two + hours away (it's winter and she's out in the country) and our hospital midwife was about a half an hour away. Our back-up OB was about ten minutes away but if we had needed her I would have been taken by ambulance (to get an IV started while on the road, etc) so that didn't really matter.
