    You should not have to worry about the cord.
    The pups come out in a sack and the mother chews this off and chews the cord and eats the placenta. I did not have to do anything except watch.

    Straining is that she will look like she is trying to have a poo, pushing but nothing is happening. If this happens for two hours she needs a vet as a pup can be caught.

    Again all went well here.

    I will keep an eye on this thread in case you need more advice.
    It is great that you are desexing after this.

    Make sure your bitch has a good diet, puppy kibble, maybe some raw egg with the shell crushed in it, sardines, raw meat, yogurt is good too.

    I also fed my bitch on divolactic powdered puppy milk to help with milk for her pups.
    I also had a late pup pop out an hour after I thought she was finished lol. I thought my eyes are deceiving me.

    Hubby decamped to the spare room and I had the whelping box in our bedroom. Pretty also liked to sleep with me and was happy to do this as well as be with the pups when they needed her. Any noise from them she was with them and could also see them from her position on my bed. I also had a night light on so we both could see them better.

    Be aware that pups can not adjust their own body temperature for a couple of weeks. Try and keep the air temperature consistent.

    I would keep the 14 month old away from the pups when they are with mum. Some bitches will not like you being close or handling the puppies yet. I was lucky in that Pretty was happy for me to do so but she watched me like a hawk. She may be very protective of them and see you or your child as a threat and act accordingly.
