Parents can now register babies in hospital

Brand new parents at Catharina Ziekenhuis no longer need to go to City Hall to register their baby’s birth. As of Monday, they can do that in the hospital.

According to Eindhoven Alderman Torunoglu, the regulation has been created to make life easier for parents, and to simplify the service.

Today, baby Vince was the first baby to be registered in the hospital. ‘It was a really nice experience. With our first son, my husband has to go to City Hall alone, but now, because it can be done in the hospital, I was able to be present too, and we were able to do it as a family’, says new mother, Ellen van Dijnen.

Following on from a few weeks ago, when the passports were already delivered to their home address, the registration itself has now also been simplified. ‘The Municipal Council came up with this idea, to make things easier for new parents. When you’ve just had a baby, you have a lot to think about. By organising this in this way, we hope to give parents more time to spend together. And mum can be present too’, says Torunoglu.

Catharina Ziekenhuis is not the first hospital in the region to offer this service. St. Anna hospital has been doing internal registrations for some time already.
