The birth of a child must be reported to the competent authority in whose jurisdiction it was born.

To report a home birth are obliged in the following order:

  • each parent of the child, if he or she has custody,
  • any other person who was present at the birth or is taught from the birth from their own knowledge.
  • for married parents
    o Birth certificates
    o marriage certificate or a certified copy from the marriage register,
  • for unmarried parents
    o Birth certificate of the mother
    o if paternity has already been recognised:

 Declarations on the recognition of paternity
 Father's birth certificate
 if applicable, the declarations of custody

  • Identity card, passport or a recognized passport replacement document of the parents
  • a certificate of birth issued by a doctor or a midwife or a maternity nurse, in so far as they were present at the birth.

A marriage certificate must also be presented if the marriage is dissolved.


Fees may apply. Please contact the competent authority.

The birth of a child must be reported to the competent authority within one week.

The date of birth is not included in the calculation of the notification period.

If a child is stillborn or died in childbirth, the report must be filed no later than the third working day following the birth.

The responsibility lies with the municipality and the city in whose jurisdiction the child was born. As a rule, this task is the responsibility of the registry office.

On the basis of the certification carried out in the birth register, a birth certificate for the home birth can be issued on request.
