Birth Appointment

It is a legal requirement that babies must be registered in the registration district where they were born.


  • If your baby was born in Worcestershire you can make an appointment at any Worcestershire registration office and receive the birth certificate immediately. Please continue with the appointment.

  • If your baby was born outside Worcestershire and you live outside Worcestershire then you will need to contact the registration office in the district where you live.
  • If your baby was born outside of Worcestershire but you are a resident of Worcestershire  then you have a choice of attending a Worcestershire registration office and stating the particulars for the registration. These details will then be posted to the register office for the district where the birth occurred. There will be a delay in you receiving the birth certificate, as you will need to contact the register office in the district where the birth occured a few days after your appointment with us to order the certificates from them directly.
  • Alternatively, you may wish to attend the relevant registration office in person and receive your certificate immediately. If the latter is your preferred option you cannot make an appointment here but will need to contact the relevant office direct.

We need to establish that you will be correctly registering the event and by answering the question below we will be able to help you better.
