Birth certificates are obtained through Alameda County. When you have a baby at Stanford Health Care Tri-Valley, you are asked to complete a form that is sent by Medical Records to Alameda County. The county forwards appropriate information to the Social Security Administration, which automatically mails a Social Security card to you as the parent(s). Birth certificates can be requested directly by calling Alameda County Offices at 510-272-6362.
You may also visit the Alameda County website to request a birth certificate.
