I'm gonna stick with my first thoughts though and say just leave her be. Sometimes they eat entire broods, often as a result of stress. So leave her alone for now and hopefully she will stop eating them.

NB: The mother will eat any baby that she feels has some sort of diformity.

What were the conditions in the tank? Maternal cannibalism seems to be more frequent if the mom knows the young wont's survive in their present environment.
