Make a very nice little letter that says something to the effect of:
"Haveing a baby is physically and emotionally exhausting for mom, baby and even dad. We all need time to rest. Mom needs time to heal, regain her strength and get accustom to breastfeeding and this baby's sleep habits. As a family we have added a whole new person so we need the time to get to know them and redifine our new family. Just like a newly married couple has a honeymoon to spend time alone together becoming adjusted as a new "family" we will have a babymoon. We ask that no one call or visit in the first two weeks (or what ever time seems appropriate to you) We will be sure to call everyone as soon after the birth as possible to give you all the statistics and we'll post pictures online (if this is possible for you) as soon as we are taking visitors we will call and invite you to come over for an hour to visit with the baby. There will be no more than 3 vistors in a day and we hope that no one will be hurt if they aren't the first. We know that you all love us and want only the best for us. We feel that the best for our family is to spend time resting and recouperating and keeping healthy."
If they baulk at it they don't get called for visting time :P

That would probably get rid of them for a good long while...
No, I'm not being serious.
