Any twin moms with vaginal deliveries? Please direct me if there is another thread.
I feel pretty alone right now because while on another multiple moms site I basically was told by many that I was endangering my babies' lives by trying for a vaginal delivery.
Background: I am 35. My DH and I spent over $25,000 in the States TTC#1. We ended up having IVF in Europe and gave birth at home to our DD. It was my dream birth and I am grateful for it.
In Sept of this year, we went back to Europe and had IVF again, this time we conceived triplets but lost Baby B early. I now have two healthy babies growing well. I'm 9w3d.
We have spent over $45,000 total in trying to have a family. I have had 4 miscarriages in the past. But just because we had to have surgery to get pregnant doesn't mean that I want an automatic surgery to give birth.
I switched to another OB in Atlanta who specializes in delivering multiples vaginally. He even delivered a triplet VBAC mom this past January vaginally! But I am receiving some flak from friends/family about why I don't just opt the "safe" route for a c-section. I realize birthing never goes as planned and I may end up with a necessary c-section anyway, but I am so glad I found a doctor who will not only support me, but has extensive experience with delivering multiples vaginally.
Anyone else out there with the same mindset?
