With your report in Design View, click on Group & Sort in the Grouping and Totals group to reveal the Group, Sort, and Total window at the bottom. Click Add a Group, then click on the down arrow next to the Select Field area, then click Expression to open the Expression Builder. Type in Month([BirthDate]) and click OK. (This assumes that the name of the field containing the birth date is called BirthDate - correct as needed.)
On the next level down, click on Add a Sort and then sort on Day([BirthDate]),
Note that you can also simply select the birth date field in the Select Field drop down, then click More… and in the "by entire Value" area, click down and select Month for the grouping and Day for the sorting.
