Why take a DNA maternity test?

A DNA maternity test is suitable if you want to demonstrate the existence of a biological relationship between an alleged mother and a child. It can provide the definitive answers a family needs 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 fertilisation would like to confirm that the correct embryo was implanted into her uterus
  • When a family or hospital staff member has concerns that baby switching has mistakenly occurred within the hospital

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.

How we do our DNA testing

AlphaBiolabs uses the most up-to-date DNA testing technology to ensure the reliability and accuracy of our genetic testing. For your added peace of mind, we retest all our exclusion results.

Our maternity tests look at up to 35 DNA markers and examine the child’s DNA and identify which half is inherited from the mother and which half is from the father.

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. By submitting a DNA sample, the father assists the testing process because the laboratory can eliminate his contribution to the child’s genetic profile and focus on whether the child inherited any DNA from the alleged mother. If the child’s father is unavailable for testing, we can still perform an accurate and conclusive maternity test.

Our maternity tests look at up to 35 DNA markers and examine the child’s DNA and identify which half is inherited from the mother and which half is from the father.
