My immediate advice is to come back later, with level 6+ or so. That's what I did (my party had levels from 7-8 and I still found the encounter challenging). You do have more than one savegame, don't you?
That's a fight that was misplaced a bit in the game in that it was available too early. And the rats are way too intelligent and powerful for their level, as they always attack the weakest party member first. They produce wounds quickly and if one of your characters gets 5 wounds, they die.
One trick I've heard about was to lure her to the entrance or even farther back to where you came from, so that when a new pack of 3 rats spawns they won't see you. Also, be sure that you don't engage her when there are still other rats around. In my first tries there was another pack of rats that patrolled near her, which were way too many to deal with on top of the mother. The fight should start with her being alone, then after a short while she'll periodically get help from 3 more rats.
