If by CM insurance you mean Mutualité Chretienne (Christelijke Mutualiteit), you find the necessary information here : http://www.mc.be/votre-sante/grossesse-naissance/droits-devoirs/avant/al... . You can change the language easily into Dutch if that's easier for you. According to the page you need to ask your employer for the application form.

Hi Jude,

You can read a bit more about this one-time 'birth allowance', and how to apply for it, on the English-language website www.thevillage.be.

But the previous poster is right, (if you are employed on a Belgian contract) your employer should be able to provide you with the form.

P.S. you'll have to send the form back to your family allowance agency (address will probably be on the form)
