Hi aajeena,

Welcome to Expat.com

Please note that i found this website on the internet : http://qsaudi.com/making-iqama-for-new-born-baby/
It describes the procedures that should be followed when babies are born in KSA and when babies are born outside KSA as well.
I advise you to have a look at it and maybe you will find some concrete information there. :)
