Hey all, I'm writing for a friend who is pregnant with twins, her first pregnancy. She is going to do a hospital birth with a midwife and ob and she's been talking to them a lot about how things are going to go. Generally she's happy with her midwives and Dr. They have told her that if she gets to 38 weeks that they'll induce. She's asked about this again and the OB said it just isn't safe, the placenta might break down and that all the stats are that after 38 weeks it's best to just induce. She's also being told over and over that she'll probably go early since most folks with twins do. She isn't convinced that she wants to be induced at 38 weeks and doesn't know how much say she has in that. Could you mamas let me know if most of you were early with your twins and if you know of folks who got to 38 weeks and chose not to induce? Thanks!!
