I personally don't want dd (4.5yo) around much for active labor because I need no extraneous noises or distractions during that time. But I definitely want her here for the birth. I'm having a home birth and will have family take her out somewhere until birth is imminent. Fortunately I live a block from the mall, parks, and Chik Fil A play area so she can stay close until its time.
