If they still have yoke sacks let the mother put them back in her mouth. It is best to let her spit them out, but you can strip as I have done many times. I did once and the babies still had the yoke sacks so I let her put them back in her mouth. 4 days later I stripped her and they were fine. She had 31. That was my Auratus. I have 2 yellow labs and she did have some babies once. Then the male died. If she is in a divider by herself and she isn't stressed, just let her do it herself. Plus she will be weak so you will need her by herself for a bit. She wont eat her own babies, or shouldn't. I have a 10 gallon that I put the babies in.
