Please note: If your child was born in Minnesota in the last 12 months, please use the parent notice that was sent to you after your child’s birth to request a birth certificate. This form has important information that needs to be confirmed before printing the first birth certificate. Any changes made after the first birth certificate is printed will require a Birth Certificate Amendment through the Minnesota Department of Health ($40 fee). If you have any questions, or if you need to have the parent notice emailed to you, please call our office at 763-689-1191 or email [email protected]
