When the maternity of a child is in question, DNA Diagnostics Centre’s legal maternity test can provide the definitive answers a family needs.

A legal maternity test is useful in a number of different situations:

  • When an adopted child and mother are reunited and would like to confirm their biological relationship
  • When a mother who conceived through in vitro fertilisation would like to confirm that the proper embryo was implanted
  • When a family or hospital staff fears a baby may have been mistakenly switched in the hospital nursery

A legal maternity test works in much the same way as a legal paternity test. The child’s genetic profile is compared against the alleged mother and an expert DNA analyst examines the profiles for evidence of DNA inheritance from mother to child.
