A few things I would do:

Give her a stool, concrete block, or something else to put her front feet up on, they often breather easier and help position the kids this way. Also make sure she is exercising (walking) plenty to position kids , spread out hay & water sources or let her free range a couple hours a day.

Check her temperature rectally with a digital thermometer to make sure something is not brewing. Of particular concern could be pneumonia which will prevent a goat from laying down.

Put down a whole bale of pine shavings in her favorite spot - sometimes some extra deep bedding can provide relief.
