Many cats are lactose intolerant and milk will give them diarrhea so it's probably best to avoid it. If you want to give her extra calories while she's pregnant you could feed her kitten food which is good for pregnant and nursing mothers.

Pregnant cats need those extra calories! The best choice is kitten food, especially late in the pregnancy. You can supplement that with powdered or liquid kitten milk, available in your local pet store. Cats also usually do well with fermented milk products such as plain yogurt and processed cheese.

never never never give a cat especially one that is pregnant milk. Milk has a property in it that can cause all kinds of problems, especially diahreer. It is not good for them at all. Give the mum and her babies when they are born clean cold water, she will appreciate that more. I have 7 cats of my own + my fosters, i have just bought 2 of the catit water fountains they are not expensive. there is a pump inside that circulates the water with oxygen and keeps it nice and cold and clean. It is not very big, amd you top it up every day with tap water. it has a filter in the top that you wash and replace every 2 or three weeks,you will know when, this is their recomendation, but i just use my head. Wash it out once a week. they will love it,and this is really good for them. We pay £18 for them, but remember in the UK everything is more expensive, that is about $36. find one on amazon or ebay.
Give your mum plenty to eat and ask your vet for suppliments. like humans do.
