Ordering a Copy

Your midwife will submit your birth certificate to the Bureau of Vital Statistics within 5 days of your baby's birth.  If you chose to have a Social Security Number assigned to your baby, you should receive something from the Social Security Office within a week or two of this. Once you receive this, you know that the birth certificate has been processed.


Now you can request a copy of the birth certificate from the Bureau of Vital Statistics website.
