Best not to separate the Pregnant fish which could very likely result in aborted birth or premature birth = deformities and or stillborn fish.
Ideally,,those wishing to breed these fish will have artificial plant's floating on the surface or live plant's where the babies will be instinctively drawn to.
Can net the babies while they are at the surface,and move them to their own cycled,heated,filtered tank or leave them be .
More than a few will survive among the floating cover and fish will produce ton's more in a few week's.
Is what they do.
Molly in photo appears to have significant tail damage from possibly nipping from male guppies, or mollies.
Need four females to every male to help prevent this and regular water changes to prevent fin rot,fungus.
Usually happen's when not enough females are present for number of males,and or tank is too small for females to avoid the advances from the male(s), or water parameter's are suspect (ie) too soft of water, and or non zero level's of ammonia,nitrites.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
