breech/breech twins

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am pregnant with twins and both are presenting at 35 weeks as frank breech and footling. Would any of you consider this not an option for a home/vaginal birth? My midwives have some experience with breech, one has attended 8, had her hands on 5, the other attended 5, hands on one. This will be my second birth, with my first son only taking 5 hours and two pushes to get out. I just am not sure how to make this decision. any help/descriptions of experience would be helpful.

I haven't attended any twin births, but I have attended 2 (home) vaginal breech births.

If I were your midwife, I would be fine with attending you at home if you felt like it was where you needed to be to birth your babies. Yes, there are slightly higher risks with vaginal breech, but the fact that baby A is frank breech and given your history of birthing, I would be comfortable attending you.

But, above all, I think what your own intuition tells you is paramount.

: and there is still time for one or both babies to turn. The second one may even turn to vertex after the first one is out.
