Stillbirth Registration Training

Stillbirth events create a lot of confusion and errors.  It is a birth event that does not result in a live birth so it does not qualify for a birth certificate.  It does not qualify for a death certificate because, as defined by State Law, there was no life at the time of expulsion.  Therefore, the event has its own vital record certificate. 

The following links contain important information about registering a Stillbirth occurrence.
