So you have found out that are expecting a child but you have no idea who the father is! You might have been involved with 2 different men during the period the baby was conceived. Did you know you can find it out from a prenatal paternity testing? To either secure the future or just for your peace of mind.
A prenatal paternity test helps define who the father of the baby during pregnancy. It is non-invasive and completely safe for the mother and child. It also aids you to make that important decision about the baby’s future. Better deal with the legality – if that’s your cup of tea – from now on than later after the baby is born, right?
It is possible to perform the prenatal paternity test as early as 10 weeks into your pregnancy. All you need is the mother’s blood sample and a cheek swab of who you suspect to be the father of the child. After samples are collected from both parties and received at the lab, result will be available in just 3-5 business days.
Note that the prenatal paternity test cannot be conducted if you are carrying twins or in the case of IVF. Do make sure that the prenatal test you are taking is risk-free, as there are other outdated methods such as amniocentetis or CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling) test that could be invasive and harmful to the unborn child.
