On the “Birthdays” page, you can set the time at which you will be notified of the upcoming birthday. The options on this page are “On the day of the event”, “One day before”, “2 days before” and “One week before”, respectively. In the first three options, you will be notified at 9 am.

After selecting the option you want, you can exit the settings. When the time comes, the Calendar app will send you the notification.

Depending on your phone settings, you can view this notification on the lock screen, Notification Center, or as a pop-up on the screen. You can also go to “Settings> Notifications> Calendar” to edit the Calendar app notification settings.
