What is the difference between a birth certificate and a birth record?
A birth certificate is an official government document that comes from the state. A birth record is an unofficial document that St. Luke's Health provides to new parents as a souvenir that can be suitable for framing. Copies of the birth record can be obtained through our Medical Record department. You can contact the department at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center by calling (832) 355-2077.
