Hello Marly  :welcome:

The only thing you will need for your Queen is a cardboard box with low ish sides some torn up newspaper on the bottom and a blanket. Put it somewhere quiet. Put plenty of fresh water nearby and fresh food. Pop her in the box so she knows where it is and wait.
I agree with Sue about the vet.

When the kittens are ready to leave their mother and be rehomed take her to the vet and get her spayed as soon as is possible

Have fun  ;D ;D

Hello Marly.   :welcome: to Purrs. 

Sounds like you have your hands well and truly full.  A cat takes about 9 weeks for gestation, so she sounds like she may be quite close to kittening.  If you can provide her with a safe "hiding" space it will help you keep an eye on her, otherwise she may pick a relatively inaccessible place to give birth.  May be worth getting a vet to give her an exam, and to do some research now on the best care for a nursing mum.  Any idea how old your soon to be Mum cat is?
