Have you been watching her the entire time? Some cats eat the placenta right after birth. If you've been watching her this whole time, you might need to take her to the vet. If the placenta stays in her it could be deadly. I'm not sure how long you should wait though. Hopefully someone else can answer that.

Yuck - know what you mean - I can watch any birth but have to leave the room when they eat the placenta!

I'd keep a watch on her to be sure all are delivered. Normally it comes out a few mins or just ahead of the next kitten. However my one queen had the first kitten's sac break before delivery and it was dry coming out which was the only time she was in a lot of pain and almost didn't have him. The kitten's placenta was delivered with the 3rd kitten born (2 placentas came out).

I always like to be there for every birth to count them and be sure all are out of the mom.
