Paternity Test While Pregnant

Pregnant Woman
There are several options to obtain a paternity test before birth of a baby. This test can be conducted to ensure paternity prior to signing the birth certificate.

Including non-invasive blood testing
During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through lots of physical and hormonal changes. Paternity questions during this stage can prove stressful for you as well as your child. Prenatal paternity testing makes pregnancy stress-free by resolving such concerns.

Non-Invasive Paternity Test While Pregnant
A prenatal paternity test as early as 9 weeks into the pregnancy and without any risk. Yes, you have heard it right! A very exciting blood DNA test for individuals who wish to discover paternity results before the birth of a child. Free-floating fetal DNA is isolated from the mother’s blood, which then compared to a potential father’s DNA for determining paternity. A non-invasive prenatal paternity test does not involve needle insertion into the mother’s womb. It uses the mother’s blood and the alleged father’s cheek swab sample to establish paternity. Thus, it eliminates any risk to the fetus as well as the mother. We provide accurate paternity test results during pregnancy without any risk to you and your child.

Why chose us for non-invasive prenatal paternity test:

  • Paternity testing as early as 9 weeks into the pregnancy.
  • No needle insertion into the womb.
  • Risk-free for both mother and child.
  • As effective as any other paternity test.

Testing Throughout the United States (U.S.): If one party is located in a different city or state, we can setup testing at a partner laboratory site throughout the U.S.

Invasive Paternity Test While Pregnant

Amniocentesis

A Prenatal DNA test can be performed by the mother’s physician who must perform an amniocentesis during 14-24 weeks of pregnancy to extract amniotic fluid which is sent to the laboratory for testing. Usually, it is used to detect neural tube defects, chromosome abnormalities, and genetic disorders in a child. If amniocentesis is going to be performed for other medical reasons, it is possible to use some of the samples for paternity testing as well.

A doctor inserts a long, thin needle to take a sample of amniotic fluid from a mother’s uterus through the abdomen. We compare the collected with a DNA sample from the potential father. It gives 99% accurate test results for establishing paternity.

Amniocentesis is a risky procedure and carries a small risk of miscarriage caused by premature labor, your water breaking, or infection.

This procedure includes the following side effects:

  • vaginal bleeding
  • cramps
  • amniotic fluid leakage
  • irritation where a needle is inserted

You should discuss risks and all options with your doctor.

Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)

A prenatal test can also be performed by CVS during 10-13 weeks of pregnancy. A doctor inserts a thin needle or tube into a mother’s vagina and through the cervix. Using ultrasound as a guide, the doctor collects chorionic villi cells (small pieces of tissue attached to the uterine wall) which has the same genetic make-up as of growing baby.

We compare a sample taken through CVS to DNA collected from the alleged father. It gives test results with a 99% accuracy rate. Similar to Amniocentesis, it is typically used to detect chromosome abnormalities and other genetic disorders and possess risk of miscarriage. You should discuss risks and all options with your doctor. Call us at 866-DNA-2018 for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Non-invasive prenatal DNA test determines the biological father of a child before childbirth. We isolate fetal’s DNA from a mother’s blood sample, which is then compared to a potential father’s DNA profile taken from a cheek swab. After thoroughly analyzing the samples, the test results are generated that settles whether or not an alleged man is the father of a child.

The basic difference between invasive and non-invasive prenatal paternity testing is a sample collection process. In a non-invasive test, blood samples from mother and cheek swab from the father are used. While in Amniocentesis, the doctor inserts a thin long needle into the womb through the stomach to collect amniotic fluid. Similarly, Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) involves the insertion of a thin needle or tube into the vagina to collect chorionic villi (small pieces of tissue attached to the uterine wall). Non-invasive prenatal DNA testing is completely safe. However, we advise you to discuss with your doctor before opting for one of the invasive options.

No, previous pregnancies do not impact the test results of prenatal DNA testing. Generally, free-floating fetal DNA disappears from the mother’s bloodstream after 1-2 hours of childbirth.

No, not all prenatal paternity tests require the doctor’s consent. A doctor’s consent is necessary only for Amniocentesis and CVS

The cost of the prenatal paternity DNA test depends upon the options you opt for. Our paternity experts are always ready to guide you to choose the right test within your budget and which involves minimal risk to you and your child.

A non-invasive prenatal paternity test is the safest test. Certain health situations, outside of the need for a paternity test, may demand invasive procedures. However, we advise you to talk to your doctor before making any decision.

No, the date of conception can’t determine paternity. It is difficult to accurately determine the date of conception as for most women ovulation day differs from one month to the next. So, if a lady has intercourse with two men within 10 days of one another, a paternity test is the only way to determine the father of a child.

Maternity DNA Testing

Maternity DNA Testing

A maternity DNA test determines whether a woman is a child’s biological mother. While similar to a paternity test, it compares a child’s DNA pattern with that of the alleged mother to determine how likely it is that the child has inherited the suspected mother’s DNA.
