The bowl is simply too small to house the mother and fry once she gives birth...
If this is her first time holding then do not be discouraged if the fry do not make it, it would be best to give her a larger tank to give birth in and then separate the mother from the fry to prevent her potentially eating them.

They would still need a filter (sponge filter cycled) is fine for a smaller tank, along with a heater as well.

I'm not sure a 1g fishbowl is going to support a heater and filter, let alone a handful of fry for more than a very short period. If you really want to raise the fish, you should consider a 5g tank as a minimum.
