Hi Della ,So happy for you Just remember to stay calm. Its so surprizing how much we dont know ,that we do know. Most of our trouble comes from Prenatal feeding. lack of exercise for the doe and have to add our goats respond to touching love. If they are wild its still the same just a little harder if you have no help they respond to your presence any way. I was lucky to find a small trailor to drag the birthing does inside to keep me and her warm . Cant tell you how many times I have striped to the waist to help in below zero weather.Didnt even notice the cold.Please dont feel guilty if you loose one. Its all glory when you save one.I always know when they are ready and then they throw a wrench in the system . [Little brats] When I came to GoatWorld I had 4 goats now 60 . My first time to go inside to help was such a surprize I just kind of went into a trance feeling and praying cant begin to tell you how much room there is in there. If this is necessary , close your eyes and feel it all out.Soap and water clean hands is ok. I even pulled a dead fetus After a normal live birth. Took mom to get flushed out and some anti bios . Just keep in touch - We care .....goat mom
