How do you get a birth cert. for a homebirth with a CPM in MD? I need to get this ball rolling to add the baby to the ins, but I have no idea where to start.

They laughed and said I needed to call vital statistics, VS, said that they only handle the state aspect of the paperwork and do NOTHING with registering the birth. SO I called the health dept again and asked if he could PLEASE try to find out who I needed to call. After being on hold forever, they said that I needed to speak to someone at Pediatric community based services. their number os 410-887-3725. FINALLY found out that I had the right place, BUT the person in charge is out because of the weather. They took my basic information and said a nurse would call me the end of this week or next. SO anyone in Balto CO. take note of the new number.
BTW- I am waiting for the MW to send me "papers" but my baby is 2 weeks old, and I need to get this started as I have no insurance for her right now and need to get her on our policy. The ins co won't add her without the BC.
