Any ideas onnhow to encourage my guppy to give birth?

Is there anything I can do to encourage my guppy to give birth?
I have her in a breeding net and she's doing fine moving around eating etc.

I originally set up a 60L tank but I cut lots of corners (no filter, lights etc) so naturally the water is really bad so I took her out and put her in my big tank. Because I have tiger barbs she couldn't swim freely so I had to put her in a net. The water is great everything is 0ppm excepted for no3 which is at 3pp

I put some wool over the top of the net prevent the fish jumping in and out, and it darken a little also the net has 2 small plants in so she can hid and my water always has a little of tetras black water in.

I don't think there is anything to encourage fish to give birth. You could do a water change, I heard that might work

There is not a way to physically make her drop, patience is key. Just keep her water clean, at a good temp, and feed well. The less stressed she is, the more likely she is to drop.
