You should have an honest discussion with your OB about risks vs benefits of your plan. Twins can be delivered naturally but most MDs do not want to take an unnecessary chance. Trust me, your doc is documenting all over your chart that you're assuming risks based on your birth plan. At the end of the day, you want 2 healthy, beautiful babies. As a board certified OB and a published author, I felt compelled to tell share this info with you. Best of luck with your pregnancy.
