Welcome! There is a lot of great info on the internet.
Obviously you know how to birth a baby, as you have before.
In your situation, I would look up basic emergency procedures..such as if baby isn't breathing, is breech, or cord around the neck. Although if breech, obviously you could make it to the hospital in time. I would plan to have clean scissors and tie offs for cord. You can clean basic scissors with rubbing alcohol ahead of time... let dry and store in baggy. For ties offs, you could just use braided embroidery thread (cleaned and dried and stored with scissors)for a temporary tie off.... or if you plan to go to hospital afterwards even if you end up having a uc, then you could just birth the placenta and leave cord in tact and let the hospital deal with it. You will bleed a descent amount, so you might need those huge pads like the hospital uses (might be able to ask for some ahead of time) or just get some depends... but chances are a normal pad isn't going to do the job right after birth (unless you change it very frequently). Hope that helps!
