Birth Certificate Process

You will fill out a birth certificate information worksheet provided by your nurse while you are in the hospital. This information will be submitted to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Your nurse will provide you with an order form and instructions on how to order a copy of your baby’s birth certificate. Use the form to order an official copy of the certificate online or by mail from Boulder County Health Department. You may also go to any county health department office listed on the back of the order form or online at Please wait at least two weeks after the baby is born to order by mail or online.

You will receive the official copy of the birth certificate from your health department approximately 3 to 4 weeks after you place the order.
