Municipality of Nissewaard: registering a stillborn baby

Regardless of the gestational age, you can have your stillborn child registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP). You do this in the municipality where you live. With the registration, these children become visible to the parents via In addition, only the civil registry officer has access to this registration. Other government agencies do not receive data on a stillborn child. Registration is at your request and is not mandatory. If you change your mind, the municipality can also delete the registration at a later date at your request.

See the website for more information.

If your child was stillborn, you make an appointment with the municipality where your child was born for the registration. It is possible to acknowledge a stillborn child when registering. Call us to make an appointment.

Free of charge.
