CAN DNA / PATERNITY TESTING BE DONE BEFORE THE CHILD IS BORN?

Yes. This is called Prenatal DNA / Paternity Testing. If you are pregnant, you may collect a sample in two ways (which does not affect the accuracy of the test). AMNIOCENTESIS: the doctor collects a sample of the prenatal fluid. CHORONIC VILLUS SAMPLE: the doctor obtains a small piece of the placenta. SPECIAL NOTE: Prenatal DNA/ Paternity testing is considerably more expensive and must be performed by a medical doctor (obstetrician) and is not recommended because both procedures are invasive and entail medical risk to the mother and fetus.
