About Prenatal Paternity Testing

Apr 15, 2016 | Paternity

One of the questions we hear most often is —“Can I get a paternity test while I’m pregnant?”pregnancy
The answer is YES.
There are various reasons for wanting to know the answer as soon as possible. Certainly, peace of mind throughout the rest of the pregnancy is reason. A DNA test confirming paternity may pave the way for legal and medical benefits for a child born to unmarried parents.
A child’s DNA profile is set at conception and does not change. Therefore, a DNA test can be done before you give birth by acquiring the DNA from the unborn child that is mixed in with with the mothers blood. Blood from the mother and a cheek swab from the father is what’s needed to perform the paternity test. This can be done any  time after the 7th week with the prenatal paternity test from DDC. The The sample collections are easily coordinated with a call to our DNA experts who work closely with expectant couples every day.
