How do movies find real newborn babies for birth scenes?

Whenever I watch a movie in which a woman gives birth I always wonder how the movie finds a newborn baby to appear on-screen? Are there special rules for this? Who are the parents bringing their newborns in to appear in a movie? It all just seems kinda weird.
Can anyone enlighten me as to the process, rules and requirements for casting a newborn baby in a movie?
