Registering the baby's birth in France

The birth has to be registered within 3 days and by a person who was present at the birth.

It's done at the mairie in the commune in which you've given birth. i.e. Montpellier mairie for me.

Immediately after the birth - you are given a small piece of paper by the mid-wife, they also attach what you are required to provide paperwork-wise, but generally this is:

  • the full name of the baby at the time of birth
  • the date and place of birth
  • father's full name
  • mother's full name, including maiden name

You can also find this information on the Mairie website here.

Angloinfo has good information on this too.
