Default My hedgehog just gave birth and I dont know what to do!

Hello everyone!
Im a newbie at taking care of hedgehogs.
Ive had my hedgehogs for almost 2 months now.
I have one female and one male.
Theyve only been together once.
And now, my female, Pichi, unexpectedly gave birth and i dont
know what to do.
She never had a PVC pipe/igloo because I usually
give her paperbags.
Now that she's given birth. I dont know if I should still
put paperbags in her cage or just leave her be.

Also, I can see that there's one dead baby inside.
Should i remove it?
Oh and I think she also rejected one baby because she left it in
the far corner opposite to where she is.
Should i pick the baby up?

I really need your help. i dont want to be a bad owner. </3
