Dear expecting parents,
We would like to keep the paperwork you need to fill in for your child’s birth certificate to a minimum. We do however need your help in order to avoid you having to go to the Munich Registry Office in person. A number of documents are needed for this. So that you are well prepared, you can already put these documents in your hospital bag before the birth and bring these with you when you are admitted for delivery. We have provided a comprehensive summary of the necessary requirements below. Please be sure to hand over the documents (copies only) with the name you want (you will receive the document in the delivery room immediately after delivery) to our Administration.
We ask your understanding that no copies of your documents can be made in the Clinic. Should you be unable to obtain the documents in advance, we would like to point out that a personal interview at the Registry Office will be necessary.
The following documents (copies) are required:
- The passports or personal IDs of the mother and father (front and back)
- The birth certificates of the mother and father
- The naming form (you will receive this from your midwife after delivery)
- The birth certificate of the child
If the parents are married, please also bring:
- Documentary evidence of the marriage and the names in the marriage, e.g. marriage certificate, such as an excerpt/printouts from the marriage register or excerpt from the family register used as the marriage entry
If the parents are not married, please also bring:
Any documentary evidence of proof of paternity/custody declaration already granted:
For a statement of acknowledgement, you will need: a legally valid proof of paternity is required for the registration of the father in the birth entry of the child (with the consent of the mother). This will require a personal interview with the parents at the registry office, a notary or youth welfare office.
The following documents of the father must be brought along:
- His birth certificate and personal ID, and where the father is and/or was married: normally, a marriage certificate, accompanied by an excerpt from the marriage register or from the family register used as the marriage entry, each with evidence of the actual name entry. A joint custody declaration can only be submitted to a youth welfare office or a notary.

What do you need in order to give birth in hospital?
Our list should help you to prepare properly for giving birth in our Clinic.
You will be able to exchange notes with experienced mothers and midwives during the preparations for childbirth as well as during your introduction to the delivery room.
Important to know:
Every obstetric department is prepared to have the most important things on hand in the event that you need to be rushed into the Clinic. So, don’t panic if you forget your hospital bag. The most important thing is your maternity log and health/insurance card and/or hospital card for private insurance.
When should you come to the Clinic?
- Please make your way to the Clinic as soon as possible, accompanied if possible, should you experience regular and increasing labour pains, or if your water breaks or you are bleeding.
- The delivery room is located on the 1st floor.
Prepare your hospital bag early, a few weeks before you are due to give birth. Most mothers enjoy repacking and adding to the things that they will bring with them.
For the birth:
- Bath robe (loose and comfortable, easy to close)
- Comfortable shirt or T-shirt
- Loose, comfortable trousers or leggings
- Thick, warm socks
- Wash cloth
- Hair tie (hair clip)
- Glasses (for contact lens wearers)
For your time in hospital:
- A well filled toilet bag
- Bath robe
- Nightgowns (buttoned) or comfortable pyjamas
- Loose T-shirts
- Warm socks
- Comfortable underwear, if possible made of cotton, or disposable underwear
- Two nursing bras, nursing pads and possibly a nursing pillow
- Bindings (we will provide these during your stay with us)
- Money or debit card to activate your telephone and for any advance payments payable should you require an elective service
- Rooms in which elective services are provided are also equipped with a colour television and safe. Morning newspapers, alcohol-free drinks and the supply of a bath robe, towels, personal care items, etc, are all included in the service.
Patients can opt to stay in a single or double room. This option is available even where private or supplementary insurance is not available, upon payment of a surcharge.
For your baby:
During your stay with us, you will be provided with the necessary equipment to feed, care for and clothe your infant.
What do you need for your child on the discharge date?
- 1 shirt, 1 jacket, 1 trousers
- 1 romper suit, hat (2 in winter), outdoor wear
- Carry cot with blanket or pillow, maybe lambskin
- Stroller (because of space limitations, please only bring this in on the discharge date)
- Warmth is a major factor in how good we feel. If you get cold easily, you should bring sufficient comfortable and warm things with you (for example, extra blankets, plenty of woollen socks, jackets, flannel shirts).
- Try securing your child’s car seat or carry-cot beforehand; this will save you rushing about when you are about to head home (particularly for outpatient childbirths).
- Where necessary, find out at an early stage of your pregnancy about the benefits of your supplementary insurance (single room, choice of doctors, etc.).
- You should always have telephone numbers (midwife, gynaecologist, delivery room) clearly visible, and take these with you. You will only very rarely need these in an emergency situation, but they will give you a sense of security.
