My OB has given me a loong list of things she wants to do prenatally and during birth. One of them is continuous fetal monitoring (external for baby b, internal for baby a) once i enter the hospital. I am not comfortable with this.

Her reasoning is that it monitors me for potential uterine rupture (I had a csection 5 years ago). I am not convinced that this is necessary and cannot think on any reason to monitor during the first stage of labour just because it is twins.

Anyone care to weigh in? Got any information/research for me? If I were to refuse monitoring during labour should I consider continuous monitoring during the birthing phase?
