Mine has paused for a couple of hours to poop and eat and whatever else they do. I wouldn't worry!

I bought all females so I wouldn't be overrun with fry. Guess what? Very surprised 4 months in to find babies. Both girls had two birthings each from retained sperm. Only two fry survived though. One female and one male. I just let them birth in the tank and let nature take its course. I have a decently planted tank. I am down to three fish though so wold welcome a few more.

Do you have plants or shelter where she can hide a bit? Mine would get bothered, but would park themselves in the plants and hide out. Sometimes they'd lose all the boys for quite a while that way.

I have a dense area with a cave that my female hides in. The male is young and dumb. He never finds her until she comes out on her own to eat. LOL

When my moliies gave birth they had that too. Every animal that gives birth has to get rid of the afterbirth. Yes Mollies can abort from stress. One of mine gave birth to some barely formed dead ones as well as live ones the last pregnancy. Sometimes it just doesn't make it full term.
