Was it ok prior to battery change? Check fuel pressure and scan for codes.

After replacement of battery, the computer needs to relearn and during this period if the idle air passages are dirty, the idling speed would be low and tends to stall.

A little running should solve the problem and if you wish to expedite the process, cleaning the throttle body and IAC would help.
