It’s what you’ve spent the last nine months waiting for – meeting and getting to know your baby!
In the first days after the birth, you will be offered various tests to make sure your baby is healthy.
Some babies (around 1 in 8) are admitted to specialist neonatal units or children’s hospitals.
You’ll probably have mixed feelings about going home. It’s normal to be both excited and nervous.
The law in Scotland means that you must register the birth of your baby before she is 21 days old.
