In the first six months of the child’s life, your contribution, as the partner who lives with the child’s mother, is also essential. It is not necessary for you to be the child’s biological father. As the partner, we would ask you to collect a small stool sample, saliva sample and dental plaque sample on two occasions. You will also be asked to fill in a short online questionnaire twice.
Collecting the biological samples is easy. There are a couple of things to note before you begin. Watch the introduction video before you start collecting the biological samples.
