Before I had my baby, I called the office of vital records and asked how I obtained a birth certificate for an out of hospital birth. They said to call after the baby was born and they would send a packet with all the details. Baby was born, I have that packet, and it has two routes: planned out of hospital and not planned out of hospital. I called back to ask a few questions, and apparently planned unassisted isn't on their radar at all. The women is saying because I had no midwife or hospital records, I have to wait two years and go to court?
I think she is wrong, but I'm not sure what to do know. Have any of you gotten a birth certificate in california for unassisted home birth? How did you do it?
