Establishing paternity can be an important step in the pregnancy process. However, knowing where to find effective testing you can afford can be an issue. The prenatal paternity testing by AlphaBiolabs can help you by confirming the paternity of a potential father. Establishing paternity is a common need and knowing who the father of your child is cleared up several questions. By knowing who the father of your child is you have a starting point for supporting both you and your child. There are several reasons why such information is so important for your child, yourself, and your family.
About Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Testing
A Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity or NIPP is both non-invasive and highly accurate. When establishing paternity, you don’t want to take any unneeded risks. A NIPP is of no risk to your health or the health of your unborn child. Plus it is also totally safe for the potential father as well. With a blood sample from the mother and a saliva sample from any possible father (or potential father), you can receive results that are 99 percent accurate. These tests can be performed after the 7th week of pregnancy, and you receive results relatively quickly, allowing you to take any needed steps quickly.
Why Knowing Paternity Matters
There are several reasons you’d want to know beyond a reasonable doubt who the father of your child is. These matters are practical, financial, and emotional. They can also shape your family and the people involved with it for decades to come. Here are some of the benefits establishing paternity provides.
- Many fathers want to be a part of their child’s life and provide the support and love parents are supposed to. However, in many cases, who the biological father is may not be clear. With paternity testing, the father knows with full scientific certainty that a child is his. This improves family bonds and can not only help with establishing fatherhood but can also help build connections with other relatives.
- It can provide a broader medical history. Families are often quite aware of any health issues or oddities a family may commonly encounter. While some of these can be relatively benign (such as a common need for glasses) others may be more critical for long-term health and include conditions such as hemophilia.
- While the tests offered by AlphaBiolabs are not legally binding, they can be used to establish who should be supporting a child and can be the first step in this process. Children require several types of support and, in many cases, these issues and related ones such as visitation (if needed). These needs can be discussed by the involved parties and agreements be made. The first step is knowing who the father is and removing confusion.
Being a parent is a large responsibility and, for many, is one of the most important things you can do in your life. Not knowing who your child’s other parent is can be both confusing and frustrating. By taking a prenatal paternity test, you remove this confusion and can start the important steps in family planning and your child’s broader future.
