Mom Rabbit Hurting Babies?

My rabbit had babies that are now just barely over 4 weeks old.

Momma rabbit does not seem to want anything to do with the babies and I think she is hurting them.

I heard a very upsetting noise and went in to check on mom and babies. It looked almost like she was chinning the babies but the babies were making sad crying sounds when she did.

Is this normal?

Should mom be taken away from the babies?

There is a chance she is pregnant again. Could that be why she is doing this to the babies?

If she does have a new litter soon do I take her 4 week old babies away from her?

Please help!

I don't want her to hurt the babies but I don't want to take the babies away too soon.
