Did you do your prenatal care and have a good idea how many there need to be and to better evaluate distress? You don't want to see twenty minutes of active hard labor without a pup or colored fluid without a pup within 10 to 15 minutes and some other things. You can read through this top link real quick but usually if you feel something may be wrong it's best to call your vet. It's also best to know what is and is not normal before the whelp.
If she free whelp she needs to be checked out 24 hours after to be sure there are no complications (rupture, torsion, prolapse hemorrhage ect.) and retained placenta's or pups to cause deadly infection. She may need or benefit from an injection to help clean her out faster at that time (also to try and prevent infection). The veterinarian will usually go over the next steps and more common danger signs and problems for the nursing stage at that time. Good Luck.
