Kuhli loaches are usually safe with shrimp. It's possible that they'll snack on babies but I doubt it'd be a problem if they're well-fed and the tank is heavily planted . I would add the cherry shrimp first to give them a chance to get established and begin breeding.

My kuhli loaches have never bothered my shrimp, or my snails. I don't keep varieties that can breed in tank conditions however, so I have no idea if they'd snack on the babies.
