I would add a tiny bit of aquarium salt to the new, treated tap water, just a teaspoon for every 5 gallons. The warm, pure water will encourage the female to drop her fry and the trace of salt will help ease the stress of the pregnancy. When you see the fry, start feeding a little more and more often. I've found that well fed adult fish are much less likely to bother the fry.
