I assume you mean a birthing tank as in a real tank when you said that and not a net(just checking, and specify that for us and tank size so we don't get confused, often "Birthing tank" can get people confused with the breeding nets)? 5+ gallon? If she's in a net, let her loose or she'll continue to stress. If she's in a nice five gallon tank or larger(smaller than five gallons is too small for guppies), she should be fine.
If you can keep her stress down, if she has any of the brood, or of another left, she should be ok.
The fact that she aborted a batch this early from a move tells me she was likely stressed beforehand...or is a very skittish fish! Usually when you move them only two weeks or so in they do ok, but sometimes it does happen, there's always a stress factor when you move fish, and so a risk of aborting broods. =( Little yellow eggs say either not fertilized batch yet(perhaps she was about to use stored sperm to do so, or perhaps she missed some, occasionally it happens), but she was likely only one week in or so.
Don't move her anymore. Since she aborted, likely from stress, I suggest you cover the tank and let her stew and rest in the darkness for the rest of the day and night. Keep the light on for maybe an hour or two the next day and feed her if she will eat, and then repeat the darkness for another day. This will make her sleep and she should calm down and recover from the stress. You can add in a little stress coat+ and/or a small amount of aquarium salt to help if you want to. I'd suggest the stress coat over salt though, but it shouldn't hurt, slat can help relieve a bit of stress and boost the immune system to an ailing fish. Stress coat will help calm her, and help repair any damage done to her slime coat from the move and from the stress.
Let her be in there for a couple weeks. Moving her again any sooner could result in death, and/or the loss of another brood.
