You need to get those fleas off, asap! They will kill the kittens within days of birth. Our foster cat was a week from her due date when we rescued her, and covered in fleas. The vet used Advantage treatment and the fleas were gone in 24 hours. I don't know how effective a shampoo would be, but you need something that will get rid of them fast.

Also, keep the other cats away from her and her kittens, and change any bedding or anything she came into contact with. It's very important to make sure there are no fleas at all around newborn kittens.
