1. if more stillborn delivered, try to warm and massage them up, if they looks whole and fulltime.   Sometimes they do perk up...


continuing   @emmie82



They can have pauses, shorter or even days long.


As long as she is OK, no especial problems, happily nursing the alive kitten, you can wait and see.   Be observant but you dont need panic.


But if she is in visible distress, or has long unfruitful labor - contact the vet!


Labor with the first kitten may be even several hours, but the following shall be easier, so if labor for a following kitten is more than 30 minutes - contact your vet...
