Help! Bunny in labor

Hey,
A couple days ago I noticed my bunny wasn't acting the same. Shes about a year and a half old and shes usually VERY active. Two days ago, she started pulling hair out of her chest, which I knew was a sign of pregnancy/ false pregnancy. And yesterday I noticed a little blood in her cage. I was really worried today because I thought she'd have the babies (if there were any) yesterday. So about 30 mins ago I lifted her up to see if I could see if there was a scratch or anything on her to explain the blood. To my surprise I saw two little paws coming out of her.

At this moment she is still straining to give birth and Ive read it usually takes 15-20 mins for the birthing process to be complete. It's been 30 and I was wondering, should I help her or leave her be? Or take her to the vet?

Thanks

Go to the vet, now!
