How do I register my baby after a Freebirth?

You are required by law 'Notifications of birth act 1907' to notify the birth to 'The Child Health and Information service' within 36 hours. 

Usually a midwife will notify the birth, but as it is so 'unusual' for anyone other than a medical professional to do this, the process can be quite a grey area. The Notifications of birth act states that the 'Chief administrative medical officer of the health board for the area' should be notified so it is worth finding out who this before the time of birth.


It can be quite difficult to notify a birth after an unassisted birth purely because the staff will not know what to do. Therefore it is best to prepare before hand. 


After the birth is notified, your baby will be given and NHS number. 


Please note that 'Registering' a birth is not the same as 'notifying'.  You must register your baby's birth within 42 days of birth with the Registrar of Births and Deaths in your area.  

Is freebirth/unassisted birth legal?

Having an unassisted birth is 100% legal. You are not required by law to have a medical practitioner attend your birth. You are not required to notify a medical practitioner that you are pregnant either,

Will I be reported to social services for having an unassisted birth?

No healthcare professional should NOT be reporting you to social services purely because you decided you did not want to engage a medical practitioner for your pregnancy and birth. However this still happens. They may interpret your confidence in a physiological process as a safe guarding issue. If they do they must carry out an assessment to prove your baby is at risk. You also have the right to take that healthcare professional's name and PIN number and report them to the NMC for abuse of authority and Breach of the NHS consitution.  

My midwife is pressuring me into taking the Covid 19 Vaccine/ PCR test. I do not want it. What shall I do?

No midwife or doctor should be pressuring you into any medical intervention. You must have informed consent before making any decisions about medical interventions. If you feel bullied into medical treatment, this is an offence under 'The Trade Union And Labour Relations act 1992 Section 241 They can be liable to a fine and/or a prison sentence of up to 6 months. Please see the link below 

Rather than declining the vaccine, it may be a good idea to ask questions instead. For example 

  • Can you please advise me the approved legal status of any vaccine and if it is experimental?

  • Can you please provide details and assurances that the vaccine has been fully, independently and rigorously tested against control groups and the subsequent outcomes of those tests?

  • Can you please advise the full list of contents of the vaccine I am to receive and if any are toxic to the body?

  •  Can you please confirm that the vaccine you are advocating is NOT ‘experimental mRNA gene altering therapy’?

  • Can you please confirm that I will not be under any duress from yourselves  in compliance with the Nuremberg Code?

  • What are the long term studies of the vaccine in pregnant women? 

  • What are the long term studies of babies born to vaccinated mothers? 

  • Can you please provide me with data of adverse effects from the MHRA Yellow Card to date.

Where can I see a list of up to date adverse effects from the Covid 19 vaccine?
