Maternal DNA Tests You Can Do At Home

A home DNA test for maternity will determine whether the person being tested is the biological mother of the child or children.

A standard maternal DNA test is used to verify a mother/child relationship without having to test the father. A home maternity DNA test can be used in various scenarios including:

  • Confirmation of embryo used in assisted reproduction such as IVF procedures, egg donation, and surrogacy.
  • The possibility of a child being switched at the time of birth.
  • A child or children separated from the biological parent to be placed in foster care or adoption.

Discovering the maternity of a child is an emotional matter, and our team will do everything in our power to make the process as seamless and quick as possible. We have a supportive team of customer service representatives available to answer your questions.

Please be advised that the names of the participants WILL NOT be listed on the report as there is no verification of identity.

Complex Maternity DNA Test Cases

Do you have multiple children to test for maternity?

What if the mother is unavailable for a cheek swab?
We are able to accept other types of samples, such as hair with roots, toothbrush, razor or other items for forensic testing analysis on an as-required basis (surcharge applies). Please contact us for more information.

What if the mother is no longer alive?
Consider ordering a home relationship DNA test that will verify the samples of their relatives, including alleged siblings or parents.
