Municipality of Zeist: registering a stillborn baby

A stillbirth can be registered by:

  • the father or female partner of the mother
  • the mother
  • an employee of the hospital
  • the funeral home
  • others who know about the death

Registration in the BRP

You can register your stillborn child in the Basisregistratie Personen – BRP (Personal Records Database) if you live or will be living in the Netherlands.

If your child was stillborn, make an appointment with the municipality where your child was born to register the birth. It is possible to erkennen (acknowledge parenthood) of your stillborn child upon registration. You can also have your child recorded in your trouwboekje (Livret de Famille or Family Book).

It is free to have a certificate drawn up. 

You pay a fee for an afschrift (official copy) of the certificate. For more information, contact the municipality.
