Livebearers can and do hold on to their young and refuse to release them if conditions are not to their likeing. The commonest reason is too small accomodation. I would make sure that she is in a large enough container (tank) that is well planted and filtered so that she can understand that her young can/will survive. I would suggest at least a 10gal tank preferably larger.
