Thanks to the advancement in medical science, pregnancy and labour have become free of complications. Expecting parents can rely on various processes for assessing the health of the fetus and the mother. Prenatal DNA testing is a common method relied on by doctors to ensure the healthy growth of the fetus.
Since prenatal testing relies on the availability of DNA, the laboratory collects the fetal DNA from the mother’s blood. DNA from the potential father can be collected through a cheek swab or through blood. Saliva is generally not depended upon due to the availability of fewer DNA samples.

Here's everything you need to know about prenatal genetic testing
There are mainly two types of prenatal genetic testing:
Invasive: This process involves Chorionic Villus Sampling, and Amniocentesis generally carries a risk of miscarriage. This process involves a needle or a probe is inserted into the uterus, thus making it risky.
