How Soon Can You DNA Test A Baby After Birth

Do hospitals perform paternity tests at birth?

Hospitals normally do not provide or offer paternity testing services after the birth of a child as we understand it. Normally, a head nurse or doctor will refer a company like IDTO to their patient to schedule an appointment.

Can I have my DNA samples collected at the hospital?

Yes. Oftentimes DNA sample collections can be performed at the hospital but it will require permission from the hospital staff. It should also be noted IDTO may not have a mobile collector in your city to collect your DNA samples at the hospital. Therefore you will be required to visit one of the DNA sample collection facilities in our network to have your genetic testing samples collected.

If my child’s DNA samples were collected at the hospital, Can the results be used in court?

Yes. It is important that you mention when contacting our office to schedule an appointment how you will like to utilize your paternity testing results. Only legal paternity tests can be used as a legally admissible document to prove if an alleged father is the biological father of a child.
