Leave her be. She will either die or have a slow recovery in an uncycled tank. You should(if you can) go to your lfs and get a breeders box, net the baby and put it in the box. Even if your platy doesn't make it ( she probably will make it seeing that they are hardy fish) you could still watch the baby grow!

I don't have a breeding net. I have a breeding box.

Guess you could use that. Are you close to a store you could go buy the net? I just think the nets are better for water circulation.
