I had a home birth, but would only do it with a well trained professional midwife that I was comfortable with. I needed emergency pitocin and cytotec for hemorraging immediately after delivery and thankfully in my state, midwives carry it and are well trained to use it, in addition to carrying oxygen and other emergency supplies. So check into to the laws and licensing requirements for your state as they are all different. Knowing the facts might help your hubby feel comfortable.

I know some people have also had "home births" in a hotel near the hospital, OR labored until close to delivery at home or in a hotel before going to the hospital to deliver. One of those options might work in your situation.

Ina May's Guide to Childbirth is a great book to read about home birthing too. Good luck mama!
