Stillbirth Registration

All stillbirths, a child who was not live-born after the 24th week of pregnancy, have to be registered within 21 days of a still birth with a Registrar of Birth, Death and Marriages.

It is the responsibility of the mother or father, if married to each other, to attend to register the stillbirth.

If the parents of the stillbirth child are not married, and the father wants to be recorded in the entry, then both the mother and father must attend the registration office.

Form 6 is required

You will need to take Form 6 along with you which was issued by the certifying doctor.
