Female Molly swimming on her head

We have a female Molly, that has been giving birth for a few weeks. We have 2 males and they just wouldn't leave her alone. We have since moved her to her own tank, where she had given birth to a couple of babies over the last couple of weeks. I think she still has babies to deliver. She is head down and barely moving, is there anything I can do for her?

If she feeds use something with a lot of roughage and add some salt to ease her along. Her vent is locked and the outlook is not good. If she makes it don't put her with males again.
