The CNMs at my hospital work shifts, so they leave once said shift is over. The DO deliver the babies though (OBs only step in for emergency C-sections). That said, because they are employeed by the hospital they have to follow the protocols of the hospital. They act more like med-wives than midwives. I had DS at a freestanding birthcenter and one of my midwives used to work at the hospital where I work and one of the reasons that she left was because of this (acting like med-wives, working shifts, etc).
