When would I need a maternity test?

Many adopted children grow up needing to find their biological or “birth” parents and a DNA maternity test can be the final step in locating an absent mother. At EasyDNA Ireland we offer a simple to use, at-home-test, which will provide peace of mind to anyone living with doubt or questions. The same would also apply to parents wishing to locate a child they had put up for adoption. The cost for the Maternity Test is €169.

DNA immigration tests are now a very common part of citizenship and visa applications recognised by the Irish Immigration Authorities and many other national immigration departments.

A legal DNA test is also available in cases where proof of a biological relationship is needed for court admissible purposes. At EasyDNA we offer legal DNA tests for all relationship testing including maternity and paternity tests.

Collecting samples

Using our simple step-by-step guide, taking a DNA test has never been simpler. We send out a kit to all our clients to enable them to collect their own DNA samples in a few Easy steps. Samples are collected using oral swabs with instructions provided inside our kit.

Once the DNA samples are returned to us, you will receive your fully comprehensive DNA analysis report in 3-5 working days.

Note: We can only guarantee standard result turnaround time when testing takes place solely using oral swab samples. Using a forensic sample for your test may lead to an increase in turnaround time.

We do not offer express testing if you choose to send a forensic sample. We can offer express testing only if you use mouth swabs.

Whether you require a DNA maternity test or other relationship test in Ireland, we recommend contacting our staff to discuss your case. Click here to go directly to the paternity test information page.

Why not consult a genetic counsellor about your results?

Our genetic counsellor is ideal if you have any concerns about your DNA test results. They can understand and interpret all aspects of your results, helping you understand any technical language you do not know, answer all your questions or simply explain the results to you. Once you have ordered the service, our genetic counsellor will get in touch with you to organize the date and time of the actual call. The session discussing your results will take place via Skype. Genetic counselling is available at an additional fee.
