Default Unexpected hedgie birth

I took a hedgie from someone I know locally who PCSed out of country. As it turns out, this little girl was expecting..as a matter of fact she's giving birth to number 5 right now. I'm obviously under prepared. I started getting suspicious when she was moving all the bedding about yesterday. All she had was one of those tree stump hides and she's sort of 2/3 in and 1/3 out of the hide while birthing. Well, three of the 5 are outside of the nest, one of those three outside the nest looks buried into bedding, two of the five total are in there trying to feed. Has she rejected these that are outside of the nest? or will she come back for them when she's done birthing? Not sure what I'm looking at, so if anyone has some quick links for reference that would be awesome. How long should I wait before using a spoon to try and push them back?

https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forum...by-advice.html Try this sticky note . I have seen others post it before. Hopefully a breeder will be able to help youmore than I can. If you look in the breeding section of the forums there are a number of sticky notes that might help.
Good luck to you

PM Nancy or Nikki. They're both retired breeders & have a lot of knowledge. You may get a faster answer that way for what to do right now. I'm not a breeder & don't know what to recommend as far as what to do while hedgie's actually birthing (stay out of room or keep an eye on her, etc.), so send them a message & hopefully they'll get back to you soon.

Good luck, and definitely check out the sticky that phoenix posted. It has the main things you need to know for the immediate future. Then you can look over other threads & posts in this forum section, which all have lots of information included as well.
