What do Hindus do to celebrate the birth of a baby?

When a baby girl or boy is born, a priest does a ceremony and says prayers for good health and well being of the Mother and the baby.

A naming ceremony takes place on the tenth day, and the baby's horoscope is cast, showing the positions of the stars and the planets at the time of the birth. And later on it is consulted with parents and family to fix a wedding date.
