    I am not saying the op shouldn't get a c/s.

    But it's incorrect to state that twins are high risk and/or there are too many unknowns in a twin pregnancy and therefore you need to have a c/s. So many people just assume c/s are safer, there is no data to support that, even in twin pregnancies. Just because it's higher (not saying high) risk and/or there are more things to watch for, doesn't qualify for a c/s. A lot of twins will actually do better after vaginal birth. If you have qualified and experienced doctors they will be able to deliver twins vaginally (even breech) without complications. Just because some doctors aren't comfortable with it (or don't have sufficient experience), doesn't mean it's safer and/or better to deliver twins by c/s, unless you have one of those doctors! Know what I mean?

    my friend at QM chose to delivery naturally and she did.
    my sis in australia also delivered twin girls naturally. in her case, she was not given a choice whether to have c-section or natural delivery. it was her second time giving birth and the first twin actually fell out while she was standing. luckily the nurse next to her caught the baby in time! and second twin was out in a minute..
    second time giving birth should actually be a lot easier than the first time,,

    Penelope, I guess it depends what you're comfortable with.

    Good luck!

    it really is up to what is most comfortable for you. I had a vaginal delivery the first time and am considering a c-section this time around, things didn't go as well for the baby as I had hoped (i guess i could point fingers and say it was the doctor, but at the end of the day the one who suffered was my daughter), so this time around I'm seriously considering a c-section cause I know it's just a matter of taking my kid out, the recovery for me will be harder, but at least my kid will be safe (now if she / he isn't...well, then it's just meant to be!) I'm crossing my fingers....at the end of the day there are risks for both and it's what risk you can bear with...

    btw, i had c-section and recovery was fast. i was not so much affected by the operation after birth, but what really bothered me was sore nipples from breastfeeding!

    Just to let know other mums, I had my first appointment at Queen Mary last week and the doctor told me that I will have the choice for a c section or natural birth.
