What is a prenatal paternity test?
A prenatal paternity test is a method used to determine if the man is likely to be the baby’s biological father before the baby is born. It’s safe, doesn’t hurt the baby, and can be done quite early in the pregnancy.
Unlike regular paternity tests that are done after a baby’s birth, this test is done during pregnancy. It is a simple cheek swab from the alleged father.
Who is Prenatal Paternity Testing For?
Expectant Mothers. Women who wish to confirm the biological father of their child during pregnancy for personal, emotional, or health-related reasons.
Alleged Fathers. Men who are potential fathers and want to determine if they are the biological parent before the baby’s birth.
Couples. Partners who seek clarity and assurance about the paternity of their child during pregnancy.
Legal and Custody Planning. Individuals who need paternity information for legal reasons, such as child support or custody arrangements, before the baby arrives.
Healthcare Planning. Parents who want to prepare for any medical or health considerations that might be important if the child inherits specific genetic traits from the father.
Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity (NIPP) Test
Experience the most advanced technology in prenatal paternity testing with DNA Testing Solutions’ non-invasive prenatal paternity test (NIPP). This modern method uses DNA SNP microarray technology to analyze the baby’s DNA found in the mother’s bloodstream.
It’s a safe, accurate way to establish paternity before the baby is born, requiring just a simple blood draw from the mother and alleged father.
Available from the 9th week of pregnancy, this test offers results in just 5-7 business days, with over 3,00 convenient blood collection locations nationwide.
Prenatal Test with Amniocentesis or CVS
Traditional Testing Methods
For those considering a more traditional approach, our prenatal test with amniocentesis or CVS is available. This method involves obtaining the child’s DNA directly through an amniocentesis or CVS sample, usually conducted by an OB/GYN.
While these methods are highly accurate, they do involve some risks. Our prenatal experts are available for a confidential consultation to discuss if this option suits your needs. Results are typically available in just 3 business days in lab.
