Certificate of Fetal Death

In 2003, the Louisiana Legislature enacted the "Missing Angels Act," which established a new certificate entitled Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth.

Certified copies of a Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth can be requested by the parent or parents listed on the record. For a list of acceptable identification documents click here.

The first certified copy of a Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth is obtained the funeral home completing the certificate, along with any additional copies desired. After this time, additional copies may be ordered from Vital Records for a fee of $7.00.
