Maybe Angelina became informed (either by actual research or just from people giving her crap ) and decided to do differently? It's nice to know she's at least wanting to try a VBAC, let alone an HBAC, and with twins no less. Lots of doctors...but whatever. She apparently has a midwife which is better than none (assuming it's a midwife, not a medwife). She could've easily said, "Repeat cesarean, woo!" like many women. Let's just hope she became more informed on the risks of not nursing as well and that she'll actually stick to nursing the twins. I don't give it much hope, but it would be nice...
I totally expected her to nurse full-term and homebirth and all the other AP stuff (can't say the cesarean was unnecessary, especially if it was footling breech, I just hope they went as long as they could to give the baby time to turn before doing the cesarean). I thought she was the kind of person that would've even tried to induce lactation if informed of the possibility when she adopted her children. Just goes to show the US's societal idiocy extends to even the most unexpected of people.
And I try to never read comments at places like that, it depresses me about the general level of ignorance in this country. So some research people.
