Oh, and shouldn't we share this in the regular birth forums here on MDC??? Has anyone done that yet?

Something to consider when sending to your average lay person.
embarassed to say i don't know what TTTS and IUGR mean either. i've got VBAC/HBAC down, but could you fill me in on the others

Thread Starter 
TTTS= twin to twin transfusion syndrome, a risk with monozygotic twins

IUGR= intrauterine growth retardation

Some of the moms who have experienced these might be able to better explain some of these.

I wanted to be clear in the video, but the longer the text the more iMovie squishes it up and makes it tinier and harder to read, so I figured people could google it if they needed to.

It's a wonderful video!!!

Incredible! Thank you so much for making this. While I can totally get my head around HBAC, multiple homebirth, UC, etc, what is so amazing to me is the SIZE of some of these babies! Some close to or over 9# each! And people think ONE nine pounder is "too big"!

And how cool that there is a birth center that supports both waterbirth and twins! I've never heard of one.

OOh, Kjoy, would you be willing to be added to it after your baby gets here? They'd just die seeing how far you've gone!

Awesome! I wish I had seen the request for photos as I would have loved for my overdue babies to be included! But my 15lbs of babies seem so small in comparison. I want to say "What amazing moms!" but don't want to scare off the mom who thinks she is just ordinary, kwim? But I'm just an ordinary mom who went to 41 weeks.

Beautiful and inspiring. Thanks!

absolutely beautiful!!

I had TTTS w/my twins and while I do believe (and am at peace w/..well mostly) that a c/s was necessary for me..it was a little sad though to see some TTTS mommas who did give birth naturally.

It was a wonderful video and all you mommas are very inspiring!!
