Birth Certificate

When you are admitted to Newton Medical Center, you will be given a birth certificate worksheet. It is important to complete this form carefully. Print clearly and double-check your work. The information on the worksheet will be used for your baby’s legal birth certificate. Once the birth certificate has been sent to the Sussex Town Hall, your baby’s name can be changed only by court order.

The following information must be correct to ensure that you receive a correct birth certificate. This information is also needed for your baby to obtain a Social Security card.

  • Mother’s name (first, middle, last)
  • Mother’s maiden name (her name prior to marriage)
  • Father’s name (first, middle, last and suffix – Jr/Sr/III/etc.)
  • Mother’s date of birth
  • Father’s date of birth
  • Social Security number of mother and father
  • Baby’s name (first, middle, last and any suffix – Jr/Sr/III/etc.)
  • Mailing address of the mother – this is essential for the Social Security card

After the birth certificate is completed and signed by the obstetrician, it is electronically sent to Sussex’s Town Hall Office of Vital Statistics, where it will be registered with the state and permanently stored. Newborn birth certificates are available from the Office of Vital Statistics no earlier than 10 days after the birth of the child.

To request certified copies in person, go to the Town Hall Office of Vital Statistics window; the in-person process takes about 10 minutes. Download and complete the form and bring a photocopy of a photo ID or two other forms of non-photo ID (such as a phone bill or a bank statement) for the person making the request.
