Wow! PP hemorrhage and breathing issues for babies were a big concern for me, too. Looking back on the birth, I realized just how prepared and skilled my MWs were to deal with the recusitation of the babies (didn't need it, but it was a question with the cord around Sierra's neck), and my MWs had a protocol to give a shot of pit after B was born to prevent hemorrhaging, and also had the other drug (forgot the name) on hand. I truly felt so safe at home and with my midwives. But it sounds like the hospital path is the choice that best suits you at this point for many reasons, and I have to agree that establishing care with someone makes it harder to go against their wishes. At the end of my pregnancy, my peri was saying how much he would love to be able to deliver my babies, and I really felt it was heartfelt, as my DH and DD1 had formed a good relationship with him. I really liked him and yet figured that our chances of having HIM actually deliver the babies was slim to none ultimately, as that's how hospitals work. For the record, my babies were 3 hours apart (both fine and healthy as horses, but 3 hours is significant, as I don't know if a hospital protocol would give more than an hour). Typically, I do think twins come pretty close together, but like mine, it does happen like mine as well.
I'm so glad Christy C has jumped in to give you some food for thought. Her thoughtful choices and experiences were invaluable to me
Maybe start a new post calling on all moms with hospital births would be good. Like I said, I have read some stunning stories on this board of some beautiful births in the hospital.
