Why were so many of her kittens born dead? Is that normal?

My current foster cat was found on the streets, brought to the shelter then I brought her home and set up a room for her to have and raise her babies. She had 2 out of 7 kittens live. Anyone know what might of caused 5 or her babies to be stillborn? I didn't pick her up or pet her belly at all if that means anything. Also, how common is it for kittens to be born dead?


She will be spayed as soon as the kittens aren't dependent on her. Her age is unknown.

    She may have been hurt before you got her. It's probably just a case of bad luck. It happens.
