Many of the taeniura subspecies will stay with their eggs until they hatch or at least for a while. The thing is that you still have to monitor the humidity level and temps, just like you normally would if you took them from the mother right after laying.
As far as I understand they are not able to shiver while coiled around the eggs like some pythons do to keep temps up. If you try leaving the eggs with the mother it would only be for you to see her laying with them. It wouldn't really serve any benificial purpose but if you enjoy it I don't see why it should be any real problem as long as you moniter to temps, humidity and see that she doesen't seem to be hurting the eggs in anyway.
