Will I automatically receive a copy of my newborn’s birth certificate?

You will not automatically receive a copy of a newborn’s birth certificate. To receive a copy of a birth certificate, or any vital record, the record must be requested by an authorized individual or entity via an application or letter and the appropriate fee must be paid to the Missouri Bureau of Vital Records.

For more information, or if you have any additional questions, feel free to contact the Bureau of Vital Records at 573-751-6387.
