Hi, I'm Laura Campbell from Baby Ladies and I'm going to be giving you some tips on how to look after your newborn and how to achieve the birth that you want. Now, how to register a birth and obtain a birth certificate, this is really simple and this is a process that you need to do so that you can get your passport and so the baby gets their name. It's a really lovely thing to do as well. It can be a way of your partner getting involved because they can go and register the birth. So if you are in Britain, you need to do this within 42 days and there's different guidelines for elsewhere and what you can do is if your baby is born somewhere outside where you live, you can still go to your local registry office and they can just send the bits and pieces off for you. Sometimes the hospital can help you with this. If you're unsure, ask your health visit or GP or your midwife, they all know where you can go register the birth.

You can send them off to the passport office or you can send them off for benefits or whatever it is you need the proof for. You're just a bit more organized.
