    Pick it up and rub it with a towel, rub it's chest and try to clear it's mouth if there is any gunk there

    Forget about the cord mum can do that later just try to stimulate it's breathing, make sure it is warm. Hopefully a breeder will be along soon with some expert advice xx

    I don't do expert - but do what heavenleigh said - do it until you are sure it is breathing, if you think it still has gunk in it's nose and mouth that you can't clear hold it in your hands with it's had pointing away from you and swing you arms hard up and down a couple of times. DOn't give up for at least 30 mins.

    You can rub them quite roughly too - don't worry about hurting it - dead is as hurt as you can get.

    Are you having any luck?

    What day is she on? is she premature? How long did it take her to break the sacks? If the next is born with complete sack make sure to break it yourself with a cloth or towel, she may not be getting to them quick enough, wishing you well, hope the rest goes smoothly xx
