We ask this question so that we list parents correctly in the announcement. When we identify the mother's parents, we use the mother's last name with Mrs. or Ms. Example 1: John and Jane Doe are the parent of a son, Jimmy Doe, born Jan. 1. Mrs. Doe is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Smith. Example 2: John Doe and Jane Smith are the parents of a son, Jimmy Doe, born Jan. 1. Ms. Smith is the daughter of Mr and Mrs. Fred Smith.

Both parents may be contacted to validate information. Father's name cannot be included unless it appears on the baby's birth certificate. Information will be verified with the hospital.
