    One tip I forgot to mention was to count placentas to make sure all pass and if you have any doubts call the vet during usual hours and have them come out and give mum an injection to "clear" her.

    that's great, has she finished? Is the squishing while she is concentrating on the next birth or is she just a little bit overwhelmed at being a new mum and having trouble settling?

    If it's during birth just put puppies to the side on a hot water bottle covered in towels, if it's after it's all said and done just give her some time to settle in, limit people in the room, just you, encourage her to lay down and gently pat her head put the puppies to her, offer her some water, maybe a teaspoon of honey and let her relax, by tomorrow you will see a big difference.

    Make sure there are no drafts you don't want to chill the puppies and at the same time don't overheat the room and drive mum out. I always classify a room comfy if you can sit in it in t-shirt and jeans.

    A little confused over your last bit of the post regarding her leaving them, if they can get a quick drink from her great, but if she's got another being born quickly after she will turn her attention to the next one.

    Yes move puppies out of the way. I don't remove them from the whelping box I put them in a corner so she can still see them but in her turning won't squish them while she prepares for the next birth.

    While mum rests between births I return the puppies to her for that all important first drink.

    Bitches normally manage 4 or 5 very well all by themselves, when it gets up around the 7, 8 + then they often need a little help here and there so they don't tread on them while getting used to the idea. Some mums can take 8 hours to settle into their new role, but as long as puppies got that first feed and are warm all will be good.
