Iowa Birth Certificate Application Form
For you to register a child you need to give out the name of your child, tell whether the child was born alone or was part of multiple births, and give the date and place of birth. In addition to these, you must also give details of the mother. Details of the mother include: name, marital status, age, area of residence, and number of previous births that the mother has had.
It is better to have a birth certificate copy, because this copy can be more easily replaced in the event of a loss. If for some reason a child needs their certificate to enroll in some type of youth sports, it is easier to breathe knowing that a copy is more easily obtained than an irreplaceable original.
