Birth of a stillborn child

A child dying before or during birth is a major, sad event. We will try to help you in any way we can with the registration of your deceased child. You can make an appointment online to report this and make the decision to include your child in the Personal Records Database (PRD).

Make an appointment

This form is only available in Dutch.

Or call 14 036. The funeral director can also submit this report on your behalf.

The civil registrar will draw up a birth certificate during the appointment.

What to bring along to your appointment

  • your valid proof of identity;
  • a statement from the doctor showing you gave birth to a stillborn child (A statement);
  • a cause of death statement (B statement);
  • an extract or copy of the acknowledgement certificate (if you have this);
  • a copy of the choice of name certificate (if you have this).

Registering your child in the Personal Records Database (PRD)

If you gave birth to a deceased child some time ago, you will still have the option of adding your child’s details afterwards.

Please bring the following to your appointment:

  • a copy of the birth certificate;
  • your valid proof of identity;
  • your marriage certificate or partnership booklet, if you want to register your child in the booklet.
