SneakPeek Early Gender DNA Test

In the past, parents have had to wait until the 20-week ultrasound to learn the sex of their baby. Now, thanks to new technology focused on blood tests for baby gender, parents can know even faster and start planning for their bouncing baby boy or girl. Thanks to the DNA tests offered by SneakPeek and distributed by IchorHealth, baby gender tests that reveal the sex of your baby in as little as 6 weeks with an accuracy rate of 99.9% are available to Canadians. The SneakPeek test for baby gender gives you the freedom to know the sex of your baby without the need to leave your home or visit the doctor. All it takes is a few drops of blood and you can start planning for the arrival of your little bundle of joy.

How Does Early Gender DNA Testing Work?

SneakPeek uses a DNA sample from the mother’s blood to test for cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA). Prenatal cell-free screening has been used in the past to detect any chromosomal abnormalities in a fetus, but now this technology is being used to detect the sex chromosomes of the fetus. This gender predictor test can tell parents the gender of the baby earlier than an ultrasound.

When a person is pregnant, cells from the fetus make their way into the bloodstream, called cell-free fetal DNA. Because the mother already carries an X chromosome herself and all people have at least one X chromosome, the presence of the X chromosome is not what indicates the sex of the fetus. If there is a Y chromosome detected, the baby is male, and if there is no Y chromosome detected, the baby is female.
At 6 weeks, the levels of fetal DNA circulating in the mother’s blood are very low and difficult to detect. SneakPeek is the only fetal DNA test sensitive enough to detect the gender of the fetus at 6 weeks with 99.9% accuracy.

To take the SneakPeek early blood test for baby gender, all you need to do is:

  1. Order the test.
  2. Prick your finger.
  3. Collect 7 to 10 drops of blood in the supplied container (anywhere between 1ml and 3ml will suffice).
  4. Send the samples back!

Your results will be emailed to you via secure email.

Why Is Early Gender DNA Testing Important?

Many parents wish to know the sex of their child early. This can be due to a desire to feel they have a better understanding and connection to their unborn child and to create a closer emotional attachment to the baby. Knowing the sex of your child can also help to establish a sense of parenthood and bestow personhood and the beginnings of individuality onto your child. Knowing the sex of your baby in advance can also help you and your loved ones prepare for the coming child, especially if you already have a child or children and you want to help them get used to the idea of a new little brother or sister. An early gender predictor test can also help parents make decisions before the baby is far along, including picking out names.

Plan For Your Baby’s Future With an Early Gender DNA Test!

Knowing the sex of your baby early does more than just help parents get used to the idea of having a boy or a girl, it helps to create a sense of control and give parents peace of mind. For many parents, the more information they can receive about their unborn child, the more secure they feel; there are already so many intricacies of pregnancy that adding more surprises can be another stressor. And, of course, some people are just curious! Even if parents don’t plan on revealing the sex of their child or they don’t place much emphasis on it, many people want to know more about their child as soon as they can because they are excited about the new addition to the family.

FAQs

Yes, blood tests for baby gender are far more reliable than urine tests. Urine tests are a good indicator of pregnancy because the urine contains human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), which is only present in the urine when a person is pregnant. However, urine does not contain any sex hormones and cannot be used to determine gender. Products that have been previously marketed as urine-based gender predictor tests are wildly unreliable and only have about a 50% accuracy rate; no more accurate than a random guess.
