Who May Request a Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth?          

A parent may obtain a Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth by completing an Application for Certified Copy of Death Record. Parent is to write "Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth" in Part two, Intended Use of Certified Copy.
