  • I had my twins vaginally three years ago. It all went very smoothly, though I know it's scary. Message me if you have any questions. :) Kristen

  • yeah, you don't need a c-section. tons of women have twins vaginaly, and don't let the doctor tell you otherwise. these days doctors push c-sections so they get more money.

  • Yes. I know several people that have done it. My twin sisters were born vaginally. Two sets of cousins were also. Good luck! :)

  • Ya I know a couple people that had vaginal deliveries. But if anyone of the babies is breech then no you cant.

  • sure many people have then vaginally. but they will want to monitor the second baby as the first is being delivered because they sometimes go into distress during labor. you can do it.

  • Yes you can. But at your age, pregnant with twins a lot of OB would suggest you a c-section. But its your decision after all. I would NEVER EVER want to have a c-section again. It was horrible. I had to have one though, so there was no way around it. But if you dont need a c-section, then please dont do it. Takes way too long to heal and be able to move around normal again.

    I didnt have a vaginal delivery yet... since my daughter is my only child. But all my friends (which had normal birth) told me, that they rather had the pain before and while giving birth and afterwards be able to enjoy every minute with the baby.. walking around, picking them up out of the bed ect. I couldnt do that after the c-section. :(

  • sure, people were having twins and more vaginally LONG before c sections were ever an option. I think the best thing you can do is try. I mean don't feel bad if you end up with a c/s but I would at least give pushing a try first. Good luck!

  • You can of course they would need to be in the right position so they would keep checking you etc. But worth a try!! :)
