I've been a MDC member for a while, but don't post much. I'm 20wks pg with triplets and after reviewing the available research we've decided to plan a vaginal birth unless there are medical indicators that we should do a cesarean. We've found a great OB who is totally on board and truly understands the benefits of vaginal birth, delayed cord clamping, breastfeeding, etc and is completely supportive. We're seeing a perinatologist concurrently who isn't supportive of vag birth for triplets, but she's an excellent high risk doc and I feel well taken care of having both of them coordinate my care. I'm a childbirth educator and birth doula so I have a good handle on my options for pregnancy and birth and trust my doc to intervene as little as needed.
I plan to breastfeed (I basically bf'd twins last time, my nephew got exclusively my bm for 5 months along with me bf'ing my own son), I cloth diaper, etc. I'm having a hard time finding triplet moms that I have very much in common with. I've gotten a LOT of static for planning a vaginal birth unless otherwise indicated, planning on bf'ing all 3, planning to CD all 3, etc. I guess I'm just wanting to say hi and see if there are any triplet or high order multiples mama on here.
I look forward to getting to know you guys and to all the great advice I'm sure you have to give!
