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 Moerdijk.
