Home Births

Parents who birth their baby at home or outside a birthing facility, will register the birth of their baby with the local vital statistics office. The registration must be complete within 10 days of the birth of the baby. After 10 days, a Delayed Birth Affidavit must be filed in addition to the required documentation.

There are three main steps involved in registering a home birth:

Once the documentation is presented the data will be entered to register the birth and generate a birth certificate. A signature will be required on the birth certificate and can be either the parents or the attendant to the birth.
