MOTHER'S DILEMMA

Pregnant divorcee wants test done to determine father of unborn baby

Bangalore: A 40-year-old pregnant divorcee has sought the help of a city hospital to conduct a DNA test to determine who is the father of her unborn child. 

She recently divorced her husband for 10 years and began living with her partner but continued to have a physical relationship with her former husband. The marriage ended because of her failure to conceive. 

The woman, who is in the 19th week of pregnancy, said she wants to confirm the biological father of her child so that she can live with him. Both are willing to marry her. The paternity test involves blood samples from the two men, the woman and her baby's cells. The men are working in MNCs, while she is currently a homemaker. 

"I was married for 10 years and then divorced my husband but continued my physical relationship with my ex-husband. In the meantime, I also got involved with another man," the woman told TOI in an email, a week after she went to the Milann Fertility Centre for the DNA test. 

"I was convinced I couldn't conceive. But I was surprised to be proved wrong. The question now is: Who is the father? Not knowing this would have a deep impact on my life, my family and child," said the woman who will undergo the procedure today. She'll know the result after five days. 

"I live with my fiancé who I hope to marry if he's the father. Otherwise, I'll go back to my ex-husband and we'll start to live together again," she says. 

She said her parents are extremely supportive. "They're nervous only because they want me to have peace of mind and be happy," she added. 

Dr Kamini Rao, fertility specialist and medical director, Milann Fertility Centre, said: "It's the dilemma in the mother's mind that's making her get this test done. Both men want to marry her but would like to who the father is." 

What's a paternity test? 

"This procedure is called amniocentesis. We take out 5ml of amniotic fluid which contains the baby's cells. We collect blood samples of the mother and the two men. 

The mother has taken the responsibility of getting their samples," said Dr Kamini Rao, fertility specialist and medical director, Milann Fertility Centre. As the test involves a needle being inserted into the mother's womb, there's 0.5% chance of a miscarriage. "The mother is willing to take the risk," said Dr Rao.
