The American Hospital of Paris does not issue birth certificates. Births at the Hospital must be registered at the Marie (city hall) of Neuilly-sur-Seine, the town in which the American Hospital of Paris is located.
If you plan to give birth at the Hospital in the future, the Hospital will provide you with all of the healthcare documents necessary for the birth registration at the mairie, which must be completed within 3 days of the birth. Once you have the acte de naissance, you can then register your child at the U.S. Embassy to have a Consular Report of Birth Abroad. See specific Embassy requirements at: http://france.usembassy.gov/birth_abroad.html
In the event that you need a birth certificate for yourself, you will need to contact the mairie directly. You can request a birth certificate online by visiting the city hall’s official website:
