Is there a "professional" dedicated to sibling childcare during labor?

I'm in the midst of really getting things nailed down for this birth. My plan is to labor at home for as long as possible before going to the birth center. My concern is childcare for my 2.5 year old son during labor. DH works rotating shift work so it's not likely he will be home when labor starts to watch DS (besides, I'll need his support which would be hard if he's tending to DS). We have no family nearby and no friends I'd reliably trust with childcare.

My ideal situation would be to go into labor, labor at home while DS is taken care of in our home, have DH drive me to the birth center leaving DS with the caretaker, birth knowing he's well taken care of at home. Return home as soon as is feasible. I'd love a caretaker I could call to come to my home when labor begins and remain as long as it takes for me to return home.

Anyone know if there is a "professional" dedicated to this purpose that I could hire?
