Well like a human would.. it sounds like under extreme conditions.. she had a miscarriage but it was late enough for some to survive? Maybe she didnt get enough nutrients to carry out a successful birth? She shouldnt die unless of course she's sick and that was the cause of a bad birth.

guppy

i once had a guppy named tina. she gave birth only 2 days after we got her. she had about 20 babys but afterwards she was dieing. i kept saying that she will live and that she must live for her fry even though i knew she wouldn't hear me. it worked but the next time 3 months later i wasn't there because it was midnight. she died but had two frys. her best friend ranbow and her mate flame did all they could to help. rainbow or flame would attack any males that came near her. but the next day after tina died flame did too then five days later rainbow died.
