Birth Registration

Out of Hospital Births

By law, you must register the birth of your child within 10 days of the birth. Your midwife will assist you in completing the Birth Worksheet.

For births with no licensed midwife, download the home birth letter (PDF). To schedule the required appointment, or if you have questions, please contact us. For unmarried parents, a Declaration of Paternity form must be signed. You can also view the home birth packet (PDF) for more information.

Hospital Births

Certified copies of birth records may be obtained at the Clerks Recorders office. Please allow three weeks after the birth of your child before submitting your request.
