“Hospital Record of Birth: Certificate of Live Birth “Medical Birth Cert”. The medical community has established the practice of issuing the Certificate of Live Birth when a human being enters the world. This form will include the basics of the baby’s name, parent’s names (surrogate mum and Father), doctor names, hospital, sex, race, date of birth and person completing the record. Health care professionals will then enter the information into their hospital database.
At this point, the father should verify that the information on the form is correct. Mistakes can be made on the original form or during medical data entry. The SM mother may, of course, be stressed and won’t be able to concentrate when given the form so it is important that the father is present or the agency lawyer. Corrections should be made before the Birth Certificate is officially issued.
Remember in this Medical Birthcert it is the SM’s name that will appear on the Medical Birth Cert and not the IP Mother.

Once this information is complete, this Certificate of Live Birth is sent to the Office of Vital Statistics or State Register to create the Official Birth Certificate. At this stage it is the IP’s names who will go on the official birth cert and not the Surrogate Mother but you must submit both documents when applying for a passport for your baby.
