Maternity Registration Form

Maternity Registration Form

Even if you've had a baby at the Coombe in the past, all maternity patients must fill in a Patient Registration Form. Please return the completed form to us in order to receive your first appointment. Click the word 'more' (below) to download a copy of the form.


Registering the birth

You will need to register the birth of your child no earlier than 21 days after the birth, and no later than three months after his/her birth. Registration is a legal requirement in Ireland, but you also need the birth certificate for many other purposes.

We notify the General Registrar's office of the births that occur at the hospital. This is NOT sufficient to register the birth, and the parent(s) or other qualified informant must attend in person to complete the registration process, and sign the Register of Births in the presence of the Registrar.

Further information on birth registration, including all the information you will be required to give, is available on the General Register Office site at
