How you do a birth certificate when you have a UC? I'm sure it is different from state to state, but where do i start?

it differs from state to state-- call the office of vital records and I would recommned getting a written list of what you need to do- some workers are ill informed
often it helps to know what you need to do ahead of time-- some places require "proof" of pregnancy along with baby exam and some are way simpler than that

Thanks! I have been worrying about this since I had a hard time last time, and that was a MIDWIFE ATTENDED BIRTH and she filed and did all the paperwork for me!

Our big problem was with social security. They said I needed MORE THAN a birth certificate and my ID! I said what more could you frickin' want? and they said "Shot records" well when i said we dont vax, that got me more puzzlement than the homebirth.

I ended up taking my healthy little newborn to a doctor to say yes he is real. That reciept from the doctor, with the birth certificate, got us his Soc#.

We wanted our tax return to be as big as it could be! : He was our dependant and gosh darnit we wanted to file.

So dumb!!!!
