In brief: Reconsider

While most home births go well and it is a very appealing concept, birth is the singular time in life that one is most likely to require resuscitation! therefore it is essential to have skilled & experienced professionals with proper equipment & facilities at the time of delivery should it not go well.
Reviving a depressed newborn is not something that is easily learned or performed at home.
