I agree that you really should get the final say. With our first, we had lots of people in the waiting room that would pop in during early labor to chat and visit. My MIL walked the hospital halls with me before I got put in a room, but after that she stayed in the waiting room with my parents. My sister and friend stayed with me longer, but I kicked them out once it was time to push. It was just DH and I for the main event and then N hour later, family was able to come back to see Lily. It worked out well for us. With our second, it was such a short labor in the middle of the night that no one showed up at the hospital until the next day. I figured out that I liked that much better. It was like the birth was our little secret for the night. We made phone calls to my mom and MIL but DH and I got to spend some good one on one time with Abri without interruption
