Certificate of Live Birth vs Birth Certificate


The Certificate of Live Birth is the first ”unofficial” document filled out by parents, certified by the hospital, and sent to the state’s Office of Vital Statistics. It’s the hospital’s record of your birth and must be completed shortly after you are born. It is used mainly for data entry purposes. The certificate of live birth is then sent to the vital records office, where it is used to create your birth certificate. The birth certificate is the official record of your birth.
