Establish paternity before the baby is born
This is a medical procedure that is performed between 14-24 weeks gestational age. The mother must discuss with her doctor (OB-GYN) the potential risks involved, along with making arrangements to have the procedure performed. The procedure involves the insertion of a needle into the womb and drawing out approximately 10cc of amniotic fluid.
- Test results can prove paternity of a child before the child is born
- Amniocentesis is an invasive procedure done by your physician
- Amniotic fluid is time sensitive and must be tested at the lab immediately
- Your physician should be provided with a prepaid overnight shipping med-pak (not included) to ship the sample directly to the lab
