Birth Appointment Information

  • Preferably only one person is to attend the appointment unless joint registration is required e.g. unmarried parents for Births, or use of an interpreter.
  • Apart from the baby being registered we are unable to accommodate any other children. If you are unable to find childcare the birth registration can be deferred. Please be aware that the Registration Officer has a right to defer the appointment upon your arrival if the registration cannot be safely undertaken in line with the above.
  • We ask that payments could be made by card to avoid cash handling.
