You should also take into account how the mother cat reacts when you get close to her litter. If she seems perfectly relaxed then you will probably have no problems touching (and admiring) her newborns, but if she shows any sign of aggression, such as arching her back and spitting or hissing, then she is telling you in no uncertain terms to keep your distance. You should respect this, not only so that you do not get hurt, but also so there is no chance that she rejects the kittens.
Cats will very often give birth in one place and then move the kittens to a place that they feel is safer. If that happens to be the bottom of your wardrobe, or any other place that is personal to you, then so be it unless it really is inconvenient, or there is some danger. If this is the case, then you will have to touch the kittens to move them.
Make sure that the mother has easy access to food, water and a cat litter tray so that she does not have to move far from her babies, or for any length of time, especially in the early days. As the babies get older, they will also need to be able to access these. On the whole, cats tend to be very clean animals, so they will naturally use a litter tray, but if the kittens can see their mother using it they will learn so much more easily.
