Most homebirthers do not do these things, so your midwife will probably be able to let you know. They are not mandatory anywhere but New York. They're practically mandatory, in that hospitals may tell you you have to, and may even do without consent because they're so used to it, but they are NOT. It is mandatory that they offer/try to get you to. Not that you actually have to have it done.
