Would you be ok with your husband doing this?

Hey ladies just curious as to what everyone thinks. We are first time parents. My husband has a ft job and also volunteers on the side with sports. Theres a clinic for coaches about 6-9 hours away. Driving. Depends on traffic. But he'll be traveling on a Friday and coming back on a Sunday. We are discussing if its a good idea for him to go or not as I will be 37 weeks and I'm really nervous that I'll go into labor and he will not only be gone, but possibly even miss the birth. Do you think itll be ok if he goes?first time babies usually come on time or late vs early....right. ??
