If the mothers died without laying the eggs, then i don't think there's anyway for them to live..

I've never had experience with them but i'm sure if you have some plants for them to hide in and feed them well as well as keep their water clean, that they will grow.

No i mean the moms died in labor, meaning the babies are still inside them
I have a net breeder to put the babies in until i go and pick up another 10 gallon fish tank from a friend of mine
