Order Your Birth Kit

Whether having your baby at the Belvoir Home or your own home, all clients are expected to purchase a birth kit. The birth kit inclues things like cord clamps, gloves, lubricant, gauze, chux pads, a baby hat, a footprint kit, sitz bath herbs, and other things like that. The items we have chosen are boxed into a custom kit from Everything Birth. Be sure to order your birth kit by the time you are 30-32 weeks pregnant. You will find optional items listed at Everything Birth that you can add to your birth kit, such as oral vitamin K, perineal massage oil, newborn products, nipple cream and other items. Mothers who are Rh negative need to order the Eldon card.

Tennessee Birth Certificate

Baby's Birth Certificate

If your baby is born in Tennessee, he/she will be issued a Tennessee Birth certificate. Certificates 'may not be available to issue for approximately 45 days' after receiving the original certificate from the midwives. Home birth certificates may even take longer. We send out the birth certificate approximately one week after your baby's birth.

 

You can get in touch with Vital Records at::

615-741-1763 or

855-809-0072

Tennessee Vital Records Link

 

Baby's Social Security Number

On your baby's birth certificate, there is a box that is checked 'yes' for parents requesting a social security card for their baby. This request will not be filed with the social security administration until AFTER the birth certificate has been completed. It then can up to five weeks for the social security administration to process this. They will send you the social security card when all documentation is completed. If it is taking longer than five weeks, you may visit your local social security office or call:

 

1-800-772-1213

Social Security Link

 

What can the midwives do to help?

Unfortunately, once we send the original birth certificate to the state we cannot help. We can not expedite the baby's birth certificate or track what is happening with your baby's social security number.

 

What happens if an amendment to birth certificate is filed?

An amendment to your baby's birth certificate can take up to three additional months.

Georgia Birth Certificate

If you are planning a home birth in Georgia, you will need to go to the Georgia Department of Public Health in your county and request a "Home Birth Packet." After your baby is born, the forms need to be submitted to Vital Records
