Glad you could join us here! For me personally I would make a ramp or when she has finished hatching the eggs lift her and the chicks down so they can't fall or injure themselves. The learning centre has some good articles on broody hens in the hatching eggs section. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks

Yorkshire coop has given you a good tip and link so I'll just say hello and it's nice you're here!
Hi and welcome to BYC. I usually move momma and chicks to ground level once the hatch is complete - mum never tries to return to the nest (guess she's bored of being there for the past 3 weeks ). The link that you have been given is very helpful.
All the best and congrats
