DNA worldwide can print your genetic code on your shirt, help figure out who’s related to who and they claim they can tell a new Mother if their kid is a boy or a girl 6 weeks in…

Once a woman has taken the test, she sends her sample directly to the company’s laboratory for analysis and will receive the result in the post or can access it online using a protected password.

The test looks for DNA from the baby in the mother’s blood. If it picks up a Y-chromosome, that means a baby boy can be “confidently” predicted.

If there is no Y-chromosome DNA, the company can state “with equal confidence” that the baby will be a girl, the company says.
