What is a home maternity DNA Test?
A home maternity test may be used in various circumstances:
- In the case an adopted child and mother are reunited and they would like to affirm the maternity.
- In the case a mother who conceived through in vitro fertilisation would like to confirm that the proper embryo was implanted.
- In the case a family or hospital employees fear a baby may have been accidentally switched in the hospital nursery.
- Providing life-long peace of mind after returning home from hospital
A home maternity test works similarly as a home paternity test. The child’s genetic sample is compared with the sample of the child’s possible mother and a professional DNA analyst examines the samples for evidence of DNA inheritance from mother to child.
If you need the maternity test results solely for peace of mind and not for legal reasons, you have the option to collect your DNA at home and send it to EDC for testing. Keep in mind results are not court-admissible.
TIP: If you think you may need results for court in the future, we suggest you do a legal test in the first place so you only have to test once.
Legal vs. at-home maternity test?
What to consider when selecting a DNA maternity test?
Legal maternity test:
Provides court-ready results that may be used to resolve child support disputes, custody disputes, probate issues and other legal matters. Samples are collected at one of EDC’s conveniently located certified collection facilities insuring proper chain of custody is maintained. A documented chain of custody is required for all tests that may be used for legal purposes. Legal test results can be submitted to Immigration agencies or courts as legal proof of maternity.
At-home maternity test:
Referred to as a non-legal maternity test or at-home maternity test. This maternity test is used when you just need or want answers regarding genetic relationships. A pre-paid express envelope is provided so that you may expedite your DNA samples to the lab. Home maternity test results is solely for peace of mind and not for legal reasons, you have the option to collect your DNA at home and send it to EDC for testing. Keep in mind results are not court-admissible.
