If you are expecting a child, you are busy enough preparing to welcome your little one – don’t let questioning the paternity of your baby cause you stress. To help ease your mind, the testing specialists at Choice DNA offer several options to conduct a paternity test while pregnant. Here we walk through the details of prenatal DNA testing to help you smoothly move forward with bringing your child into the world.
What DNA Test is Right For Me?
Taking a paternity test while pregnant takes one of two forms: noninvasive and invasive testing. Noninvasive testing is able to detect the child’s DNA in the mother’s blood after the ninth week of pregnancy. By analyzing a blood sample from the alleged father alongside the blood sample from the mother that contains the child’s DNA, this test concludes whether or not the man is the father.
Invasive or traditional DNA testing takes a sample of amniotic fluid from the mother’s womb to analyze the child’s DNA profile alongside the alleged father’s. This procedure is conducted in a medical office, but the DNA samples are shipped to our own Choice DNA laboratory for analysis so you can be assured of the reliability of the results.
