I know what you mean!
When my female is about to deliver, I know she gives a scent which drives the males nuts, so I remove her beforehand, and thus she doesn't have to deal with that besides the birthing. It is stressful enough with the delivering process. I have a 10G tank for her to get into the process, and no others around to harass her and the new babies. It also makes her removal easier -- have a tank separation divider to keep babies out and give her a few days to recover. I move her about 5 days to a week before.
Despite having 4 females give birth recently, and seeing them in the tank right in front of me, I have yet to actually see a baby being born. Not like the videos on this, my female is hyper, running up and down the corner at the edge, eating everything in sight. She is not still at all. Sometimes pushes her bottom up against a shell to help it along. Just thought I'd mention this, none of them have been quiet and not moving. They seem anxious to get the babies on their way.
