How do you feel about blank sections on birth certificates?
Not that I want her father listed, but it looks incomplete with the entire father section left blank.

I wish my DD's had a blank spot, or that my now DF was on it instead of "sperm doner".

Not sure what you mean? Like personally? I guess it depends on the situation.
In some situations it is better to leave it blank imo.

Sorry I know you're after parents perspectives but my father isn't on my birth certificate and I'm so glad of that (and always have been). I have one parent and that's my mum and I'm glad that she's the only one on there.

My own birth certificate has a blank father section. Even though he was around in my life, not anymore though.
I don't think it's weird. And I've never heard anything about it when signing up for banks or anything which at the time I'd thought about.
I'm glad he's not on there now. But I don't think about it much.

My BC is blank too. It never bothered me until I was older, but only because I realised I could have got a European passport as he was born in Italy! Selfish reasons I know lol.

It would bother me. My mother was adopted. And my grandma who is 99 was adopted. The history trail runs off into the unknown. This bothers me. Because of this I have felt strongly about these sorts of detail regardless of the situation and how I personally feel.

Sorry, I meant the actual look of it. I think, in the absence of a second parent, it should have that part removed instead of left there not filled in. but I think that might be my OCD speaking lol, I hate leaving parts blank. But like I said, it's better blank than filled in.

I don't think it's weird. From your previous post share a book I'd probably would of left it blank too.
Now I suppose it's how your dd feels about it more so in a few years when she needs to start using it

I agree it looks incomplete but sometimes it's for the best.
I left my DS's fathers section blank. I know it leaves me open to judgement and criticism when i have to supply his birth cert and i know one day DS will be asking the dreaded 'why?' questions. I have my reasons and i guess thats all that really matters anyway.
