My midwives provided all the paperwork for his birth certificate, it will be sent in and we'll pick it up at town hall.

I believe you can find forms online if you go unassisted.

My midwife makes sure to fil out and file all the paperwork, but if you are unassisted you have to do it.

I was in a state where CPM's cannot practice legally.  My midwife provided all the information and paperwork she could.

We took our prenatal record, a bill, and two notarized papers from two adults who saw me give birth and brought it all to the department of health.  We fill out the form that the hospital normally does and turn it all in.  We checked the box on there to get a SS card.  We got everything in 6 weeks.

I know every state and or city is different. I'd ask around locally.

Call your local County Health Department.  They'll know!

We had to go the county office to get it. Also had to show proof that she was indeed born to us at home. .which was a pain. .considering I had her alone at home.

Usually the midwife has the forms.
