Default Mother Hedgehog Behavoir

My hedgehog had her babies of 5, three weeks ago. She has been leaving her nest more frequently and after she is done eating she just lays down in front of her food and doesn't move. I'm nervous that she is sick or is now wanting to reject the babies. Please help.

She probably just needs some time to herself. As long as she's still feeding the babies everything is ok. If she stops looking after them or stops eating then you need to worry. I had one mom that would come out of the nest and block the door with her bum so the babies couldn't follow her out so she could have some alone time.
