A stillbirth in Singapore will be automatically registered once a doctor certifies the stillbirth online. There is no need for the parents to register a stillbirth at a registration counter.

  • Stillborn child’s sex
  • Date of stillbirth
  • Time of stillbirth
  • Place/address where stillbirth occurred
  • Cause of death

The doctor at the hospital will certify the stillbirth online and the stillbirth will be automatically registered.
