There are two possible options , stay with her and watch for signs of actual pushing to see if they will be delivered without assistance for a few hours?  If no pushing then I would call the vet and ask if I could give oxytosin to help them be expelled
Not really sure on the lenghth of time to watch

You would also want to treat her for Anemia I would think... Does she have Bottle Jaw?
I think some red cell would help.. definitely want to get those worms out asap.
