If you want to do it through Facebook, don't send out a message. Just maybe, post a status saying; "Can't wait till DH and I have our alone time with baby _____ after the delivery. I love you (So's name) I'm sure our journey together as first time parents will be wonderful."
Something like that where they'll get the point.

Easy. Just don't say anything at all to any of them until after the baby is born, that way you don't have to find a polite way of telling them you don't want them there and you can be sure you get that intimate privacy you want.

Let them be offended. All that matters is that you have the experience YOU want. Can't redo it.
