I am 34 weeks preg with twins. My ob and I discussed today that I will be in the OR for the second stage due to hospital policy. He is going to see about having a regular birthing bed in there so that I won't have to be on the operating table. He says I will likely be able to choose the position I want to be in for pushing, I believe as long as I am on the bed. Is there a position or positions that are best for twins? My son was born after 20 minutes of pushing in a semi-reclined position with my legs being held up. I have read that squatting can cause tears if the baby comes out too fast, so I wonder if that wouldn't be a good position for me. Any insight? Thanks!
