Identity Questions
of the child's mother

Maternity DNA testing determines the biological mother of a child. It is much like a DNA paternity test, but it compares a child's DNA pattern to that of the mother. Children inherit half of their DNA from their father, and half from their mother. Even if the father does not test, DDC can conclusively prove whether or not the child's DNA matches the mother's.

Maternity DNA tests are often requested in the following situations:

  • When an adoptee is trying to prove who their biological birth mother is

  • Prove a maternal relationship for immigration

  • Confirmatory accuracy for in vitro fertilization

  • Resolve the controversy that sometimes occurs in hospitable vulners


In a Maternity DNA Test, the child and the mother are tested - the father is optional - but is encouraged to participate. It helps exclude half of the child's DNA from the dad, leaving the other half of the DNA for comparison with the mom. The father's test does not increase the cost of the test, and it is not required.


Maternity DNA tests with the mother and child are accurate.
