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.
