OSUtiff:You have to send away for the birth certificate. The paper work that you filled out at the hospital was simply the information that would go on the BC (to my understanding). Click here for more information. Good luck!
Yeah, unless you gave the hospital a 25 dollar money order or check and told them to send in the form to the Columbus Pubic Health, you wont get it. The hospital gives you a form to send in, and you will need to send the money order in with the form. Birth Certificates are not free.
