Normally, DNA samples are taken with a simple cheek swab. With an unborn baby, it’s a little more complicated. A medical specialist takes samples from one of two places: the amniotic fluid (amniocentesis) or the surface of the placenta (Chorionic Villus Sampling).

Are there any risks?

Whenever samples are taken from the amniotic fluid or the placenta (for DNA or another purpose), there is a risk of miscarriage. We recommend you talk with your doctor/obstetrician before ordering the test.
