Completing form for baby's birth certificate - HELP

I feel a little silly for asking this, but I don't want to submit this incorrectly.

I am filling out the required form for our soon-to-be-expected child's birth certificate and it's asking for my name. Now, no where else on this form does it ask for my maiden name. I've changed my name to my husband's, but I am looking over my birth certificate (American) and my husbands (British) and both our mothers are listed either in their maiden name (US) or new name with mention of their maiden (British)

So my question is - what is the right name to list? My new married name or my maiden name? I am just recalling how often I had to submit things using my mother's maiden name and the proof was on the birth certificate. Does anyone now how it's listed here on a swiss birth certificate? I know most women hyphenate their names after marriage, but I haven't.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Is it a British or American birth certificate form?

If it is British, the married name should be used.

I'm sure I put my married name (but it is a blur straight after giving birth) and as they need your birth certificate and marriage license they can see your maiden name from them. If in doubt ask at the hospital.

I have just checked my sons birth certificate, he was born here in Lugano and its got my married name on as all my documentation is in that name and I was registered in the hospital under my married name.

Hope this helps
Michelle
