It's worth a try if you'd like to, you could have the tub there and decide in the moment where you want it to happen. It's nice to have options. HTH
This was me. I only had one home birth but had planned a water birth and had the tub but when it came time I gave birth on a futon too

I labored in the tub and out. I went in and out probably 10 times
