Resources on accidental unassisted birth?

Hi! My midwife is an hour away and DH just got a job that has him commuting 2.5 hours. My last two births were 4 and 3 hours respectively so there is a high potential for my homebirth to end up an accidental unassisted birth. Now of course I plan to discuss this with my midwife but can you recommend any good resources for what to do in the event that nobody is around but me? Complications to look for, don't cut the cord, clear airways, etc?
