Ordering a Still Birth Certificate
OBTAINING A STILL BIRTH RECORD
As of January 1, 2008, ONLY a parent (mother and/or father) can obtain a Certified Copy of a Certificate of Still Birth. There is no need for notarization of the form.
These certificates can be purchased from our office the first 5 years after the still birth. After 5 years, the certificate can be obtained by contacting the Alameda County Recorders Office, (510) 272-6362.
Certified certificates are issued on a long form (8 1/2 " x 11") security paper with an official embossed seal.
- Full name of the child as it appears on the Fetal Death Certificate
- Date of Stillbirth
- Father's and/or Mother's full maiden name
