At UAMS, we offer our deepest sympathies to you and your family during this difficult time. Please allow at least two weeks for UAMS to send the birth and/or death information to the vital statistics department at the Arkansas Department of Health.
If your baby lived for any length of time after birth, then you will be able to get a birth certificate from the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) vital records. When you are at UAMS, please complete the birth certificate worksheet and give it to your nurse before you leave the hospital.
If your baby passed, was born live or stillborn, then you will be able to get a death certificate from ADH vital records. Please complete the death certificate worksheet at UAMS and give it to your nurse before you leave the hospital. If you have chosen a funeral home for your services, then they will help you get your baby’s death certificate.
You may order a birth certificate or death certificate online, by telephone or in person at the Arkansas Department of Health office at 4815 W. Markham in Little Rock. You may also order a copy of a death or birth certificate through VitalChek.com.
If you have any questions, please call the UAMS Bereavement Coordinator at 501-251-5996 or contact:
