Understanding DNA Test Results
Reasons a person may require a maternity test:
In many immigration cases, a maternity DNA test may be required to prove a biological relationship between a mother and child. The DNA sample for an immigration test needs to be taken by a professional doctor or nurse for legal reasons. If you require a maternity test specifically for immigration purposes, please find more information in our immigration section.
A person who was put up for adoption as a child may want to find out who their biological mother is. A maternity test will be able to prove a conclusive result, establishing whether or not there is a biological relationship.
A surrogate is required when a woman cannot medically carry a child. It is possible for the surrogate to contribute to the child’s DNA, however the contribution would be extremely small and not affect the physical appearance or characteristics of the child. DNA testing is able confirm that the donor is the biological mother and not the surrogate.
A maternity DNA test offers women who have undergone IVF treatment peace of mind that there hasn’t been a mix up during the fertilisation process, and that the child is biologically theirs.
