Would you let your children into the birthing room?

Well would you? My friend and her DH brought their 4 year old DD with them to the hospital to be there while they give birth to her brother. I find it a bit strange. So would you let your children into the birthing room to watch it all happen?

I didn't, but they were pretty young. I didn't want them to be scared.

If I have another I would probably let my daughter in.

They have relatives in the same town so that isnt the issue.
