I am scheduled to have a c-section thursday to deliver my twin girls at 36 weeks. I have marginal vasa previa so have to have the c and they don't want me to go much past 36 weeks. I have had steriods much earlier in the pregnancy when we worried about twin to twin transfusion. My biggest concern is feeding issues. I had no nursing issues with dd1 born at term so I don't know much about problems that might arise or what they may want me to do at the hospital. Just looking at posts here it seems there is something called human milk fortifier and something called neosure or preemie formula. What is the difference? What are the options if I need to supplement? What are legit/valid reasons to supplement if I am able to pump enough bm. Are there times when they may want to supplement that aren't legit? My problem is that as a natural minded mama (no-vax, exclusively bfed dd1....) who doesn't neccessarily trust that protocol at the hospital is always the best course I don't want to just agree to everything they want to do in the nicu just because I have preemies but I also understand that there may be legit medical reasons for me to do things that don't seem right to me.
