    I am not an expert by any means, but I did have a couple breeding pairs of parakeets many years ago. They like to nest in a box (Google search "parakeet nest box" to see one). The babies will be born naked, blind and helpless. The parents will feed them and care for them. There may be more that you could do, but all I ever did was offer them a box to nest in, fed them well and gave them a vitamin supplement. Also, they always had a cuttlebone. It kept their beaks trimmed and it also provided calcium. A good source of calcium can help prevent broken eggs.
