Please be careful about getting near the kittens, especially in the early days. I had a cat that gave birth once, and when a friend of mine tried to hold one of her kittens, she viciously attacked both of us. I was covered in puncture wounds from her claws and had to go on penicillin. My friend still has a bad scar on his arm to this day.
I'm certainly not trying to scare you... just reminding you that some cats are extremely protective of their young and might not want humans touching their babies -- especially if you are not this cat's usual owner.

Cats (& bitches) need privacy for the first 6 weeks.
At about the 6 week mark is when they allow the babies their first freedom, and don`t mind visitors.
Only their immediate and loved humans should approach the kittens before that time, but not for handling, just to look at. And certainly no strangers to handle the kittens. This could cause her to move her babies to a safer hidden place.
