SECTION 23-3-10.2



   § 23-3-10.2  Certificates of birth

resulting in stillbirth – Filing. –

(a) The state registrar of vital records shall establish a certificate of birth

resulting in stillbirth for fetal deaths, defined as the naturally occurring

intrauterine death of a fetus that occurs after the twentieth (20th) week of

pregnancy. The certificate shall be issued only at the request of either

individual listed as mother or father on the report of fetal death. The

certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth shall meet all of the format

requirements for a certificate of live birth as provided for in this chapter.

If the parents of the stillborn child decide not to name the stillborn child,

the person preparing a certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth shall leave

blank any references to the stillborn child's name.



   (b) The certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth shall be

filed with the state registrar of vital records within ten (10) days after the

delivery. When a birth resulting in stillbirth occurring in the state has not

been registered within one year after the date of delivery, a certificate

marked "delayed" may be filed and registered in accordance with regulations of

the department of health promulgated pursuant to the provisions of §

23-3-3 relating to evidentiary and other requirements sufficient to

substantiate the alleged facts of birth resulting in stillbirth.
