 Should i seperate mother from her newborn babies?

i found what i think is a northern water snake...huge.about 3 feet long and inch& a quarter wide...kept her for a few days to relocate and gather pics and research since they are rarely seen...i went to let her go and she was giving live birth, so far 10 to 12 babies so i put her confortably in an aquarium with the already born 10 babies....will she eat them?....

she might if shes hungry seperate the babys like a couple days later, she should have dark bands or blotches on a light brown or gray background color.some adults may appear solid black or brown.
