What should a woman who deliberately aborts her foetus do (to expiate for her sin)?

you will be able to answer my question. I would like to know, besides repenting to Allah, is there a certain punishment a sister in Islam should receive for having an Abortion? And,if so, who carries out the punishment?

Praise be to Allaah.

She has to repent for deliberately aborting her pregnanacy after it had been created, because aborting it is haraam and is not allowed. Once pregnancy is known, it has to be protected and it is haraam for the mother to harm it in any way, because it is a trust which Allaah has placed in her womb, and it has rights. So it is not permitted to treat it badly or to abort it.

See al-Fataawa al-Jaami’ah li’l-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, 3/1052.
