Births and Naming Ceremonies

Congratulations on the birth of your baby. These pages will provide you with all the information you need to register the birth of your baby. Here you will find easy to follow guides on the registration procedure and legal requirements. We have also included some useful links to other relevant organizations and departments.

Additionally, we understand that this is a special time for you and your family, and you may wish to mark the birth of a new baby, an older child or an adopted child in some way. Our Naming ceremonies give the opportunity for you as a parent(s) to make personal promises to your child that reflect your feelings and values. A naming ceremony can be an opportunity to involve all of your family and friends to welcome your child with a uniquely designed ceremony. Our pages will provide you with all you need to know and offer you the opportunity to take a virtual tour of our ceremony rooms.
