When I have my baby can I get a DNA test a the hospital?

Yes, separate cost: Paternity testing becomes less risky after a child is born. Samples simply need to be collected from the mother, father, and child and based upon those samples all of the genetic markers in the dna can be used to establish paternity. The easiest of all of the collection methods is via cheek swab for saliva and cheek cells. The collection is so simple in fact that at home paternity testing kits are. ...Read more

Can u perform DNA test even when the baby hasnt come yet to make sure who the father is?

Yes, but...: It can be dangerous, as you have to sample the amniotic fluid or do a chorionic villus sampling, both of which can predispose you to a leak or even miscarriage. It is infinitely easier to do it after the infant is born. Speak to your obstetrician about it. ...Read more

I want to find out who my baby's father is without a DNA test. Can I use the old fashioned blood type testing?

I want to find out who my baby's father is without a DNA test.  Can I use the old fashioned blood type testing?

Too vague: Blood type testing can certainly exclude a designated person if their blood type is incompatible with that of the child. For example, a dad who is ab would not have a kid that was an o. But narrowing down & proving someone is by this means is unlikely.There are some companies that offer dna tests for this purpose & some states will require this method to identify dads for child support disputes. ...Read more

Someone said that you can get DNA test done before the baby is born. Is that possible and if so how?

Amniocentecis or CVS: It depends on the dna test that is necessary. In most cases, dna can be obtained by a procedure called amniocentesis or by chorionic villus sampling. Both are safe and involve placing a needle in the uterus to extract some cells of the child. There is also non-invasive paternity testing available from the mother's blood. So it depends on what dna test, the reason for it and age of the pregnancy. ...Read more

Sex with someone in nov. Got period dec9. Had sex with bf dec 6,15,21,22. Due sept 14. How do i convince bf it his bby? Do we need a DNA test for nov?

Paternity: It sounds like you are not going to convince your boyfriend of his paternity by your word alone and that he has some trust issues with you. DNA testing is likely going to be the only way you are going to prove to him he is the father. You will need to wait until the baby is born, unless there is some other medical reason to invade the amnion and obtain fluid for testing before birth. ...Read more
