If your baby is unwell
When your baby is born, the midwife will check her or his heartbeat, breathing and colour. If there are any concerns, your baby will be given treatment. This may include air to help with breathing. Someone should explain to you and your birth companion(s) what is happening. If your baby has to be moved to another room during this treatment, he or she will not be kept away from you any longer than is necessary.
