You need to be giving the sow at least 10cc of penicillin for the next three days or so, so she doesn't get an infection. If you think the sow is worth the trouble then breed her again, usually the second litter is easier on the sow cause they are older and bigger.

Did you give her parvo lepto vaccine? That could be the problem with still borne and mummies

On her first litter were the pigs sellable as showpigs? If they were pretty good pigs then I would give her another chance, but I also know that are a lot of costs involved and its not that fun when you only get a few pigs out of all that time and money ya put into it.
