Babies born at Sparrow Hospital will now get a new kind of footprint on their birth certificate.

The hospital is doing away with the ink method and is using a digital system instead.

The Certa Scan captures a baby's footprint, leaving a digital record that lasts a lifetime.

Sparrow says the new technology is more accurate and there's less cleanup.
