Birth Announcements

We are sorry that we cannot accept birth announcements electronically. Births are not public records. Either or both parents of a new baby must sign a form agreeing to have the birth information, and the parents’ names, published in the newspaper. The hospitals (and some midwives) keep these forms. Home births must be submitted in writing by the parents or midwife with the information verified by a parent signature.

If you have questions about birth announcements, please call (208) 377-6400 or email: newsroom@idahostatesman.com
