Ok. Should be simple. Anyone had to register child without the form should get from the hosp with your discharge notes? If so how do you do it? We were told was in my notes but when got home wasn't there. Asked midwife when were out and they were supposed to be sending one out. Now we no longer under midwife and still no form! Would really like to get John registered asap. Anyone else had this prob? x

  • HA wish mine were lazy! She was so pedantic! Asked where hubby was born, said I'm 99% sure it's chesterfield, she said 99% isn't good enough and had me call him to confirm!! X

  • Given she could end up in prison if the details are not recorded correctly, may be not so pedantic...

  • Lol. Ours was easy as we were both born in the same hospital in leytonstone so didn't even hesitate lol. xx

  • I didnt need anything although I took the form as it said too but no didnt need anything to register but am sure when u ring up to get an appt to register u can just ask if u need to bring anything coz by the looks of things different parts of the country needs different things. X

  • I was told to take my red book and discharge notes when we got our daughter registered and the registrar asked us for neither of them xx
