you can hold them anytime you want, not just after they are born because the mother might not accept them they will smell like you and she won't nurse them, after that it depends on the mother and if she feels safe with you she will let you hold them if she doesn't be very very careful do not even think about holding them.

Can you carry a newborn kitten?

Well, it all depends on how new this newborn kitten is. If you're talking about just being born a few seconds ago, the answer is NO. A mother cat licks her newborn kitten to get it to start breathing. If you pick up a newborn kitten that's only a few minutes old, you're basically killing it. If the kitten is a few hours or a couple of days old, go ahead and pick it up, that is if you can. A mother cat is very defensive of her kittens. you may get scratched or bitten in the process.

When do you give away a newborn kitten?
