So, this is my third pregnancy.  #1 and #2 were born at a birth center and home.  #3 just turned out to be #'s 3 and 4!  I used to be a doula and CBE in Virginia but I am new to Washington and I don't have resources here.  Anyone attend, encourage, and support vaginal twin birth in the greater Seattle area?  I am actually in Southeast SnoCounty but will travel (with trepidation--labor #2 was 1.5 hours and labor #1 was 3 hours).

It's possible.  The usual advice is to start with CNM Sally Avenson.  But, Group Health midwives/ob are a good option as well.  For homebirth options...I don't have any direct advice, but it's possible.
