Homebirth and a Newborn Exam with PKU Screening? - Page 2

post #21 of 22

We're not rural but we did choose the PKU from the Ped at about a week old, if I'm remembering correctly. At the end of my pregnancy, I started to worry a little about infant morality rates for HB and decided that I would go the traditional route with pediatrician visits (not vaccines but just well-checks) so we were at the pediatrician anyway. Have you asked your family doctor if she/he will do one?

We're not rural, but not city either.  Our midwife offers to do it or we can get it done at the hospital lab or an independent lab.
