Hi, I had a doe give birth to triplets this afternoon. Doe seems to be in good health and the labor was quick and without any issues. The first born was a very small doeling, the smallest of the three. She was immediately responsive and is still doing well. The second and the third were bigger babies, born just a few minutes apart with no issues, but never really acted "alive". They had heartbeats and were moving just a bit right after coming out but there was an immediate decrease in activity and eventually we lost their heartbeats. I'm not an experienced goat midwife and in retrospect am thinking I should have held them upside-down and encouraged all mucous and embryonic fluid out of their throats and lungs right after birth but I'm not convinced that the fact I didn't do that caused their death. Neither seemed to be actually struggling for breath. Any ideas on why they didn't make it? I examined the exterior of their bodies and there were no deformations or visible issues. Both were good sized and seemed well formed. I'm not sure on the mom's gestation dates because I don't know exactly when she got pregnant but based on the size of the kids I doubt they were premature. This is the first kidding I've had her for and I don't know what her past history is. Any answers or suggestions would be so helpful! I've been searching the internet for "baby goat died right after birth" repeatedly with no helpful information coming up. It was so sad and I would really like to know if there was anything we could have done--just so this incident doesn't get repeated! Thanks!
