Pregnant molly!

Hi all,
Just wondered if someone could give me any advice?

My Molly fish is pregnant and I think she's about to give birth! Do I put her in a small hatchery over night so that the other fish don't eat the fry or shall I just let nature take it's course?
I want all the fry to survive but don't want to stress out the mummy Molly by separating her in the hatchery!!
today and last night she has been hiding in the floating plants on the surface of the water and breathing quite fast! I don't know if she is going to give birth real soon or not!

Any suggestions welcomed.

We got one those breeder nets and put our pregnant Molly in there. Didn't seem to stress her. Then we took her out so she wouldn't eat the babies. That was the second time. The first time we didn't know she was pregnant and the other fish in the tank ate all the babies but 2.

hey,
Yeah the same thing happened with my molly's first lot! All but 3 got eaten, so that's why I particularly want to save these ones.

Thanx
