Before your seventh month of pregnancy, Houston Methodist Childbirth centers recommend you preregister to ensure we have your information when you arrive at the hospital. You can preregister in person or online. Please provide your:
- Insurance information
- Social security number
- Expected delivery date
Your signature will be required in person before delivery to treat you or give you anesthesia.
Birth Certificates and Social Security Cards
You will receive birth certificate and Social Security number applications for your baby. You can order a certified copy of your child's birth certificate at the registrar's office in the city or county where the birth occurred or from the Texas Vital Statistics office in Austin.
Your child’s birth information will be forwarded to the Social Security Administration after the Texas Vital Statistics office receives it from the hospital. A Social Security card will be sent to your address.
