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 8th week with the prenatal paternity test from DDC.  The sample collections are easily coordinated with a call to our DNA Experts who work closely with expecting mothers and fathers every day.

Once the samples are sent to our laboratory, we can perform the DNA paternity test in 5-7 business days. Please click through to our website to see prices, payment plans, and more details.
