Today, most countries require birth certificates to be issued within a certain period after birth. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child also enshrines the right for all children to have their births registered.
Gender, race, and even date of birth aren't the only areas where identity, as officially stated on a birth certificate, has been shown to be mutable. Following adoption, birth parents' names on U.S. birth certificates may be replaced with adoptive parents' names.
