Declaration to the registration office
All births must be registered with the Geneva registration office. To help register births, an office is located within the Maternity.
HUG birth registration office : +41 (0)22 372 63 92
The Maternity may also carry out this formality providing you supply all the required documents. An envelope containing all relevant information is given to you at your first appointment.
Declaration of paternity
Father-child filiation is automatically established when the parents are married. If this is not the case, a father can acknowledge his child through a declaration before the registrar of the place of origin or residence of the father or the mother or the place of birth of the child. This declaration can be done during the pregnancy
