Maternity Test

When the maternity of a child is in question, DNA Diagnostics Centre’s maternity test can provide the definitive answers a family needs.

Maternity testing is useful in a number of different situations, including:

  • When an adopted child and an adoptive mother are reunited after years of separation and would like to confirm their biological relationship.
  • When a mother who conceived a child through in vitro fertilization would like to confirm that the proper embryo was
    implanted into her uterus
  • When a family or hospital staff person fears that baby switching has mistakenly occurred in the hospital nursery

A maternity test works in much the same way as a paternity test. The child’s genetic profile is compared against that of the alleged mother, and an expert DNA analyst examines the profiles for evidence of DNA inheritance from mother to child. The required participants of a maternity test are the child and the alleged mother. If he’s available, the child’s father is also encouraged to participate.

Delivery of results takes 2 business days once we have received the sample.
