Hello Brittney and welcome to The Goat Spot! My advise would be to read as much as possible! Fiasco Farms is a good place to get info on prenatal care, birthing problems and solutions, and postnatal care. This place has a ton of information too on every imaginable problem. Just remember that people tend to come here BECAUSE they have a problem, so just because your whether winked at you doesn’t mean he definitely has a tumor above his left eyeball. I would also suggest getting a relationship with a good, goat friendly vet. When you need them, they are invaluable.
When you have questions here, give as much relevant information as is possible: weight, age, diet, temperature, anything different you may have notice recently, and so forth. The more information, the less questions need to be asked and the quicker these wonderful people can help find a solution. Good luck Goating!

Welcome from an old woman in Northern Europe as well! :) I may add my mantra perhaps? Goats are originally bush eating animals from the mountains, and need twigs and leaves in their diet. This keeps their rumen healthy. Non-toxic, of course, see what you can get and ask the knowledgeable people here!

So, your does are bred, are they? Do you know more exactly when? A reliable date is a great help. While waiting, try to make them see you as their best friend, also read about all kinds of delivery problems, and when the time gets closer, sit down and support them when they groan, and remember:

Most deliveries pass unassisted. Around 99 out of 100 will be without any problems. But, we do not know which one will be the number 100, that is why we check all the 99 times as well, enjoying this great Wonder Of Life. And try to find out which kind of a doe you have right there, a "hold-my-hoof - doe" or a "let-me-concentrate-on-this-job, - get away stupid human --doe. This can change several times during the same delivery!! A camera will be a good help, especially if it takes up sounds as well.

Good luck with your goats, and, again, WELCOME!!
