why την ? and not τη . I learned ν is before vowels and κ, τ , π , ξ , ψ, γκ, ντ, μπ, τζ, τσ

You are right. But apparently, the final is a recurring orthographic problem. The final is considered "included" in the continuous (εξακολουθητικό) consonants: (γ, β, δ, χ, φ, θ, μ, ν, λ, ρ, σ, ζ).

But then the final v could go with every word :/

So it really should be τη μητέρα της.

ν is before μπ, not μ on its own. ;)

From what I've read, μ is an εξακολουθητικό consonant and includes the τελικό -ν.

Whereas the τελικό -ν is needed in front of στιγμιαίο or διπλό consonants.
