Prenatal Paternity Test
CAN I GET A PATERNITY TEST BEFORE THE BABY IS BORN?
Yes. ANY LAB TEST NOW offers a simple Prenatal Paternity Test that uses a single blood draw from both the mother and alleged father.
HOW DOES A PRENATAL PATERNITY TEST WORK?
When waiting to determine the biological father of your child is not an option, this alternative may be for you – a non-invasivePrenatal Paternity Test with zero risk to the fetus. This non-invasive test gives you an accurate determination (with 99% or more certainty) of who the child’s biological father is as early as 9 weeks of pregnancy and eliminates risk to the fetus.
The process is very simple and easy. It starts by collecting blood samples from both the mother and alleged father. An analysis of the fetal DNA and the mother’s DNA can be used to help pinpoint the exact “genetic markers” that were contributed by the father. Then the DNA of the potential father is analyzed to determine the probability that his genetic markers are found in the child. This is known as a percentage probability of paternity. Test results are generally available seven (7) business days after specimens are collected from both the mother and alleged father.
Our professional medical assistant will collect blood samples from the mother and alleged father to determine the paternity of a single child. If more than one alleged father participates in the test, additional fees will be incurred.
WHY DO I NEED A PRENATAL PATERNITY TEST?
The Prenatal Paternity Test is for informational purposes and may or may not be accepted as legal evidence in court or for legal documentation use. The test results can bring you peace of mind during your pregnancy, and help you better prepare for the birth of your child and completion of the birth certificate and Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity.
WHAT TYPE OF PHYSICIAN SHOULD I SEE?
