I'm in Wyoming (near Torrington), and I'm having trouble finding someone test check my progesterone levels. They ask me who I'm planning on having do my OB care, and when I say I'm planning on having a homebirth with a midwife they can't check my progesterone levels. So how do I find somebody to check my progesterone levels?  I've already been to two wasted appointments.  I had to take progesterone with my son for the first 3 months.

Could you have an OB for the first couple months just to make sure you are getting progesterone if you need it? With my last baby I saw an OB/midwife until I decided on a homebirth at 28 weeks. Then I just cancelled my next appointment and started seeing the homebirth midwife. The homebirth midwife even prorated her fee for me. Also, could your midwife write a referral or "prescription" requesting your levels be checked? Best of luck!
