All scorpions give live birth.

I should mention, there's a few arachnids out there that do lay eggs and the young still ride around after they hatch -- the best examples I can think of being the Amblypygids (tailless whipscorpions) and the Uropygids (vinegaroons). In those cases, the eggs are held in a jellylike sac from beneath the mother's abdomen, so you may not know that you have babies until they show up on her back.

Also, If you see a scorpion pop out which appears to be yellow eggs, those are underdeveloped embryos.

also, from what I've seen online scorpions that have larger broods also seem to produce a few underdeveloped embryos. along with all the healthy babies.. they usually eat those.
