Find out your baby’s gender with his or her DNA

When Can You Find Out the Sex of Your Baby?

If you search the Internet, you will come across plenty of home methods that claim to be able to tell you what your baby’s gender is. However, none are as effective as DNA. Laboratories have created a baby gender test that uses the baby’s DNA in the mother’s womb to discover its gender. This type of test has two limitations: it can only be performed during the 7th week of pregnancy and it cannot be used if you are pregnant with twins or more babies. But how do you get the DNA from the baby in the womb? All that is required is a blood sample from the mother. Laboratories have the technology that allows the baby’s DNA to be isolated using the mother’s blood sample and, therefore, discover the baby’s gender.

It is a couple’s decision

Many reasons motivate a couple to want to know the gender of their baby. Gender reveal parties are often the first reason a couple wants to know the gender of their baby, although it is not the only reason. A couple may decide they want to learn the gender of their baby simply because they want to know. Other couples may use this test to choose what to name their baby beforehand or choose the clothes they will buy for their baby. Whatever the decision, it is entirely up to the couple and no one else. If for some reason, you do not want your family to know that you are going to do this type of test, you can buy the test on the Internet, receive it at home, extract the sample and send it to the laboratory.

What is the best kit?

After searching the Internet, you realize that many companies offer this type of kit. It may be complicated to decide, but focus on two points. Firstly, you must choose a laboratory that allows you to receive the package at your home and send it. It doesn’t matter if it is located in another country as long as you have the possibility of receiving the kit and sending it back to the laboratory. Secondly, you must be sure that the laboratory asks for a blood sample from the mother. Any other type of sample is ineffective. Before you purchase a kit, take a couple of minutes to find out what other people are saying on social media about the kit. If you find a lot of negative comments, it’s best to consider other options.
