Steelerpet underestimated a bit. Guppies can give birth to over 100 fry at one time! However, he's probably pretty accurate for the first birth, they will have progressively more fry per pregnancy as they mature.
Guppies are pretty darn easy to breed. Personally, I wouldn't do anything for the fry, except make sure there are plenty of plants to hide in, particularly floating plants (like water lettuce) and Java Moss
(which harbors lots of microscopic foods for the fry to eat). Guppies are so good at reproducing that they can take over a tank in no time. I prefer to only let the smartest/strongest survive, as you'll inevitably be overpopulated in no time anyway.
