Default adding a nest!

hi! i have 12-day old hoglets..and since their birth was a surprise, i wasn't able to prepare a nest for the mother. is it ok if i introduce a nestbox to the cage at this point? or would i risk stressing the mother?

Do not place anything new in the cage,it could cause mom to stress out and neglect/eat the babies.
