DNA testing provides an invaluable service to thousands of people who would otherwise be left to live in doubt about issues regarding biological relationships such as maternity. The DNA testing process is particularly advantageous because it is so simple as well as being highly accurate, as the test samples can be collected at home in the form of a straightforward cheek swab, before being sent to a laboratory for processing. Maternity DNA tests can definitively answer questions of maternity by comparing the DNA strand of the child to that of the alleged mother.

What does the Maternity test check for?

The actual process of maternity testing is the same as that of other types of DNA testing, such as those which establish paternity. When a swab sample is taken from the child and the alleged mother, the DNA contained in each cell is then analysed in a laboratory to determine whether there is a biological relationship between the two individuals, with an accuracy rating of up to 100%. Everyone has a unique DNA sequence, but each parent shares a 50% match with their child, meaning that 50% of a child's DNA will correspond with that of both their mother and father respectively. The Maternity DNA test examines the DNA sequence of the two individuals who provide a sample, in order to confirm whether or not a biological relationship exists between them.

How does the Maternity test work?

The physical process of collecting the sample for the Maternity DNA test differs depending on whether you need the test for legal reasons or simply for your own peace of mind. For the former, there are a number of legal requirements that need to be fulfilled in order for the test to be accepted by a court of law.

Peace of mind maternity testing

If you require the results for peace of mind and not for legal reasons, you can take the maternity home test which does not require any involvement from a third party. The test kit will include the two swabs each for the child and the alleged mother, which you will use to collect the sample by rolling the tip of the collection swab on the inner cheek. You will need to use a separate swab for the right and the left cheek. You will find detailed instructions on how to collect the samples included in your Maternity test kit, which you should read carefully before commencing sample collection. After you have collected the samples, you will need to send them in the pre-paid envelope to our partner laboratory for testing.

Court approved maternity testing

The collection process for a court approved Maternity test is different and there are several important conditions you must meet in order for the test to be accepted by a court. Legally, the samples must be collected by a third party health professional, such as a GP. You will need to arrange an appointment with this person and then complete the registration forms for the Maternity test. You should take these completed forms with you to the appointment, along with two passport-sized photographs each of both the child and the alleged mother, the backs of which will need to be signed by the health professional. You will also need to provide photographic identification, such as a passport and a utility bill. After the sample collection has taken place, the health professional will need to sign the documents sent with the test. The samples and the completed documents then need to be sent to our partner laboratory for testing.

Why should you take this DNA test?

If you require definitive scientific proof of maternity, there is no reason not to take a maternity DNA test. The results are 100% conclusive for exclusion and more than 99.9% conclusive for inclusion, meaning you can be sure that the tests will provide you with peace of mind. With the option of one quick, simple and accurate test, there is no reason to remain in doubt.
