Commemorative certificates now available for still-born babies

9 September 2013

Attorney General John Rau says that women who have suffered an early loss of pregnancy will now be able to get a certificate commemorating their loss.

The change is being introduced because under current birth registration laws, for a child that was still-born to be registered it must have reached at least 20 weeks gestation and be 400 grams.
