Any one I want can be there for labor, delivery and after baby is born.
A girl I know when she had her baby they didnt have a sitter for her son except for during her actual csection and so he stayed with them (he was 18months). So he slept in his play pen the their whole hospital stay of 5 days.
With DD I had my mom and dad, my MIL and FIL, and DH and my best friend and his best friend all there during labor. Since I labored at night the nurses were kind enough to bring blankets and pillows for everyone and they slept on the couches in the sitting area in the room. I kicked all but DH out when I started to push but an hour later when DD was born they all came right back in.
The hospital prides themselves on being family oriented and I was told if I wanted my 4 yr old in the room for labor delivery and after baby was born I was more than welcome and wouldnt be the first. I wont have her in there until after I have an epi and then Ill kick her out when I push. No need to scare the living day lights out of her! haha Ill have her come right back in after Im all covered up.
