This room doesn't make any sense to me at all.

There are four plates that need to be held down for the briar to release the roach.

There are five babies available for holding down plates.

I cannot find any way of arranging the babies that doesn't lose at least two of them by the time I lead any onto pressure plates.

What do I need to do here?

This room can be conceptualized mostly as a sequence of moves from just 4 options: NW, NE, SW, SE. The intended solution's first three moves are:

After that, it's fairly straightforward. The only other important trick is

There is a slightly fiddlier solution that cuts off the first of those three moves.
