    I would approach the hospital or university and see if there are any student midwifes attending. I had students follow and assist in both my pregnancies and they were fantastic (one was a male).
    They need to attend a certain amount of births to gain their qualifications so are usually more then happy to assist.

    Try contacting UNE and see if they have a nursing/midwifery program. They may have students who are willing to help. Maybe a nanny agency who could stay with your son at short Notice so your partner can attend.
