Natural vs Csection?

who here was able to deliver their multiples vaginally? Im terrified of a csection (im only 12 weeks and its something I think about all the time) .. I gave birth to my daughter vaginally and would love to be able to do the same with the twins.

If both babies are head down, you could absolutely deliver vaginally if all goes smoothly! I had a csection with my first, so opted to do the same for the twins.

I had planned to deliver vaginally but baby A was breech and never flipped. Chat Icon
I'll be honest.. I was terrified and totally against a c section but it really wasn't a bad experience. Recovery wasn't bad. and the scar is so little! Its still fading 1 yr later.
In all, do what's safest for you and the LOs..
Good luck!

Natural vs Csection?

I planned to deliver them vaginally. I was not really scared of a C-section but I had an almost 2 year old at home and not being able to pick him up would kill me I thought

anyway my doctor said I could go vaginally if baby a was head down - baby b could be in any position, My doctor had delivered breech before

I delivered Baby A vaginally but Baby B went transverse after Baby A was born - liked having lots of room. My doctor only wanted to wait about 30 minutes in trying to get Baby B to engage either head or feet but he would not move. BaBY B was delivered by C-section 42 minutes after Baby A.

But my recovery was not bad for having both types of deliveries. Everyone always bad for me but I was up moving later the day after the twins were born.

Natural vs Csection?

Carey., follow your gut and go with a perinatologist/OB who will let you go vaginally. There are few doctors who will turn a baby (external or internal version), and if the babies are healthy and all is working out well, you can have a vaginal birth. However, psych yourself up for the fact that you could have a c-section. It will be so much harder if you have your heart set on a vaginal birth and then they disappoint you by saying it has to be a c-section Chat Icon I think I was convinced I was having them vaginally and in the end, I had a c-section with a difficult and painful recovery.
I went into the hospital at 33W to prevent an early delivery. Baby a was head down, and all was fine. They could have turned baby B because she was transverse. However, the night before delivery, baby A decided to go breach Chat Icon I woke up that morning 5cm dilated, and they whisked me into the OR before I could even take a shower! They can't turn baby A.

I didn't have an infection or complications, I was just in a lot of pain afterwards for 4 months. I would definitely try for a VBac myself personally, next DC. Chat Icon Chat Icon

My girls were delivered vaginally- 37 weeks, 2 days. Baby A at 2:10 and one and half later... Baby B at 3:40. All I had was a epi. The delivery wasn't bad at all. The babies were healthy and happy, no complications at all.

Re: Natural vs Csection?

my OB's plan was to go with natural unless i couldnt. honestly i was afraid of going natural but was willing to do whatever was best. But we ended up having a c-section because baby A was breeched and never turned.

c-section was not bad at all. i only had pain the 2nd day and was up and around after i got some pain meds!

Re: Natural vs Csection?

My ob's were all for me having them vaginally. I was even induced for 4 days and reluctantly the Dr said he had to do the c-section because Baby B was small and needed to come out. SO I tired and they really tried to avoid a c-section but it really wasn't that bad and I was okay with it becuase after 4 days I was done with being induced.

Make sure you have a Dr that is willing to try for vaginal and then you will know that you will have the best chance at having a v-birth.

Good Luck!

Re: Natural vs Csection?

I had my 1st vaginally and really wanted to have the twins vaginally. A was always head down and B was normally transverse but 3 out of the 4 OBs in my practice said they would go in and grab him after A delivered. So I had a 75% shot of delivering vaginally depending on the OB I got.

Well thankfully B fliped to head down at 36 weeks because at 37 weeks my water broke and within 2 hours I had delivered both babies on the highway- obviously vaginally- and with no drugs!

So all those months of talking about it with my OBs meant nothing, ha!

Re: Natural vs Csection?

Mine were breech the entire time but my doc was willing to try vaginal if 1)baby a and baby b were head down or 2) baby a was head down, and then we'd have to discuss options for baby b.
i had a c section bc they never turned then i was rushed into the OR because of pre-e

Same here. And for me only baby A went head down. Baby B was transverse my entire pregnancy.
