Amniocentesis: A type of pregnant DNA testing that can be done between 15 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. For this test a sample of the amniotic fluid which surrounds the baby is collected.
Some of the risk factors are miscarriage, uterine infection, cramping and vaginal bleeding and Rh sensitization. There is also the risk of the baby being pricked with the needle and contracting an infection from the mother.
CVS (Chorionic Villus Sample): This type of DNA testing while pregnant can be done between 10 to 12 weeks of pregnancy. It carries the same risks as the amniocentesis except there is no threat of harming the fetus. This procedure entails taking a small sample of chorionic villi from the placenta because it shares the same genetic information as the fetus.
Noninvasive blood test: This method of pregnant DNA testing has 0 risks to the mother or baby. It’s usually done at 13 weeks and simply involves taking a sample of blood from the alleged father(s) and the mother.
