The death of a baby during pregnancy or soon after birth is a difficult time for parents and for the people close to them. We acknowledge the emotional hardship you face during this time.

You need to register your child if the loss was after 20 weeks of pregnancy or weighing more than 400 grams at birth. Our records will show the baby as stillborn. You do not need to register the death of your baby.
You can register the baby online and you can also purchase a birth certificate and/or choose from one of our decorative certificate designs.
If your baby died soon after being born, you will need to register the birth of your child. A funeral director can register the death of your child for you and, if you need, can apply for a death certificate on your behalf.
