Registering a birth in the Netherlands

If you have just had a new baby, you must register the birth. This applies to all children born in the Netherlands. You must register the birth within 3 days in the municipality where they were born. The mother, father or the mother's female partner (duomoeder) can register the birth.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Hoeksche Waard.


Congratulations on the birth of your child. To make this officially known, you must register the birth in the municipality where your child was born.

Was your child born in the Hoeksche Waard? You can then submit the declaration to us online.
