15 minutes, home water birth. The 1st baby seemed to just come flying out and he was born in his sac and posterior too!

17 minutes. . . A vertex, B a double-footling breech (born without intervention).

I think, though, that it was more like 10 minutes. The hospital recorded Twin B as 4:27am. But our photos of the birth show us smiling and holding both babies at 4:25am (by the big clock above the hospital bed) and I know they were fooling around with Twin B for a few very long minutes after he was born.

Six kids, sixth sense, six degrees of separation. . . from sanity!
Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".

My girls, born vaginally, were 2 minutes apart and so were my boy/girl twins who were delivered via c-section. I thought it was interesting that even though they were delivered differently, both sets were still two minutes apart.

mine were 1 minute apart. I never went into labor, and had a c-section because the presenting baby (Alina) was breech.

Mine were 14 minutes apart. It would have likely been longer had we not been in a rush to get Baby B out because of a compound presentation.

I attended a twin homebirth not too long ago where the babies were 12 1/2 hours apart!

G was born 1 min before C & E was born 30sec after C via emergency c/s. I always say the Dr was so quick that if he hadn't paused to check out & comment on G's "impressive" cord knot they'd all share a minute.
