Well, it's weird how ours worked out...not exactly how I'd planned it. I was still laboring in the pool when Rachael woke up around 6:30 a.m. Our plan had been for my in-laws to come and get Rachael if I went into labor while she was awake, so DH called them immediately to come and get her...only, Amelia arrived at 7:04. They showed up just a few minutes after she arrived - I was wet and naked in a chair in the living room, hadn't even delivered the placenta yet.
So they had to wait outside for a bit until we all moved the party upstairs!
Likewise, a friend was coming to pick Rachael up at 9 that day (it was a Saturday) to take her to a birthday party, so she showed up and got to meet Amelia before I probably would've called her otherwise.
I called my parents as soon as I got showered and settled into bed with the baby. Mom WOULD have been the first to know, if things had worked a little differently...but I definitely planned on calling them all shortly after she arrived.
