I think what you're asking can be done at home. I have a blood type that leads to jaundice as well that I did not know about till my son had it. Apparently my blood type and my sons blood type mixed together were not good and he developed a bad case of jaundice and we did all of his blood testing at home. The nurse came to our house and did his pricks there. The birth center sent her. I would ask in advance. I didn't know to look for this though. Our birth center sends a nurse to the home at 2 days pp to every one and they to do the blood pricks for every one too as well and send them off to the lab. Our pedi was able to get those lab results by the serial number. Again, ask your midwife or bc rep ahead of time and they should know. Ours was very informative of every question we had and there was never any unknowns.
