When to register a birth
Your baby's birth must be registered within 42 days (6 weeks) from when they were born.
How to register a birth at Medway Register Office
If your baby was born in Medway, you need to book an appointment to register the birth.
Appointments are available from 9am to 3pm. Check what you need when registering a birth.
You must wear a face covering in many of our venues. This includes Medway Register Office. Find out more about face coverings. If you are unable to wear a face covering you could show something which explains this, such as an exemption card.
If you're unable to get to Medway Register Office
If it is not possible to attend the Medway Register Office, the registration may be made by visiting any registrar’s office in England and Wales to make a statement called a declaration, which would then be sent to Medway.
Registrars at Medway are also able to take declarations for births which take place outside the Medway area.
