Getting Started

Can you do a paternity test before the baby is born?

Yes! The fetusSafe™ prenatal DNA test can establish paternity from the 9th week to the 36th week of pregnancy. The test is performed from blood drawn from the arm of the pregnant mother. The foetal DNA circulates in the mother's blood and it is compared with that of an alleged father for signs of compatibility. The test is 100% guaranteed to be accurate. We encourage you to call one of our paternity experts for a confidential consultation at 1 800 830-6306 or read more about the fetusSafe™ prenatal DNA test.
