Hi, neighbor!

Mom cat will mostly know what to do. They will mostly eat and sleep for the next few weeks. Make sure Mom cat has plenty of good quality food (if finances are not a problem a pet-store or vet-only brand of kitten food, or Iams kitten food from the grocery store is best - if not possible any kitten food) and fresh water close by, as well as a litter box (if she normally went outside before). And for gosh sakes, get her spayed when those babies are weaned!
