Labidochromis Caeruleus had its babies!!

Well our labidichromis caeruleus finally spit out its babies!!! I think we ended up with about 12... Now, question is, should I take mommie out now and put her back home, or do I need to leave her with her babies for awhile? She ate pretty well while the babies were in her mouth, she doesn't look real small and hungry to me. So is it OK to put her back home? Will she possibly eat her babies if we don't? It's only been 1-2 days since she spit them all out.

Thanks

From what i've read, they take care of them for a week. But watching them, she doesn't seem to do anything for them (that I can tell.) They're swimming on their own and she's swimming on her own, and no one's paying any attention to each other. What is she supposed to do to "take care of them"?
