I changed the momma dog's name to Marmalade, I think it suits her better and I know how to spell it. :) The pups are 5 days old and are doing great. My question is sometimes she wants to come out of the bathroom and stay for a bit, I make sure the pups are warm and settled in sleeping. Is it ok for her to come out and socialize for like 15 minutes before going back? It's only once or twice a day.

Yes that is perfectly fine for her to take a break. My westie girl Chloe used to do that after the first 3 or 4 days, she'd run outside then would actually sit outside the puppy box and stare at the puppies for a bit then would want snuggles/cuddles from me. I always made sure to have a blanket as they discharge for a few weeks after giving birth.

Thank you. This being my first time with puppies, I am not too confident on what is normal.
