I had Kate a little before 2am and my midwives left about 5am. Kate had some breathing issues after birth so the majority of their time was spent with her and observing her. I don't know whats normal for them, I guess it depends on the situation. They do come back 12 hours after birth and then again 48 hours later.
One of my midwives stayed with me for 2 hours after the birth then I went to the office 3 days later. They're pretty laid back and I had no complications so they weren't too concerned about me. I was up and on the couch 2 hours after I had the baby so they didn't really need to come check on me.
Normally 2 hours for my MW, but maybe longer if I feel I need her. She comes back each day for a few days, and then at 2 weeks and 6 weeks. I am able to call her 24/7 also. I think I'm going to have my MIL stay with us over night for that first day.
