I had a solo birth, but it wasn't planned. It was planned to be a couples uc, but my labor went much faster than I expected. My water broke and I'm sitting there thinking man, this HURTS!! much more than I remember! But I sent dh on to work anyway. Baby was there in exactly 2 hours.
I may plan a solo birth this time though (#3 expected 4/4/06) Because I really preferred being on my own. Good Luck with whatever you decide. Is it a possibility to give the hospital a head's up? Or maybe the emergency services? If you tell them you are alone, and suspect a fast labor, maybe they will not take so long, IF you do end up needing help....just a thought.
