Anyone have any advice for breech twins at 33 weeks? Baby A is breech and Baby B is vertex. I am very upset at the prospect of having to have a c-sec. This is my 3rd pregnancy and my first two went full term with very easy vag. births. My doctors are willing to delivery Baby B breech if Baby A is head down . . . but not the reverse. Has anyone had any success in having a Baby A turn in the last month of pregnancy.<br><br>
I am so disappointed . . .but haven't given up hope!!!<br><br>

Oh, any b/f'ing advice for twins is also welcome!!! Do you wake your other one to nurse to keep on same schedule? Waking up a sleeping baby is a foreign idea to me!! lol

Welcome, raktwins! You will probably get more responses from this on the "I'm pregnant" board, or the "Parenting Multiples," or "Breastfeeding - getting started & overcoming difficulties."<br><br>
Good luck & welcome to mothering -- I love it here & I'm sure you will too!<br><br><br>

I'm not sure where in Atlanta you are, but you may want to try the NFulton Mothers of Multiples club...<br><br><a href="http://www.nfmomc.org" target="_blank">www.nfmomc.org</a><br><br>
or any of the LLL Atlanta chapters<br><br><a href="http://www.lllusa.org/GA" target="_blank">www.lllusa.org/GA</a><br><br>
Good luck!!

Hi there<br><br>
I too am expecting twins and worried about breech (or the medical community's reaction to it.) My midwife will deliver breech if it is the second baby...I am actually worried one is transverse right now as it seems to be lying in that position but am only 24 weeks so not too worried yet!<br><br>
Not sure if you posted this thread elsewhere but anyhow there is an excellent website called <a href="http://www." target="_blank">www.</a> spinningbabies.com also the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla also can help, so maybe consider seeing a homeopath or just take the remedy in a lower potency you can get at a health food store. Also lying with your feet elevated can help, there are specfic ways to do this. It is a little harder with twins I am sure but have been learning all I can about it just in case.<br><br>
I am thinking really the second baby breech is almost normal for twins, but now so few doctors, and midwives will consider vaginal birth for breech babies. As a veterinarian we just usually have to deliver them whatever position they are in, and c-section is totally the last resort, so I was a little shocked to find this out, though I know it is a more risky presentation in human babies. Still I want to deliver my babies breech or not vaginally unless they are in danger.<br><br>
I know twins can also turn at the last minute, and once the first baby is born too. You still do have time for them to turn too. Anyhow hope this helps a little and good luck with your twins!<br><br>

Hi! There is a technique called the Webster technique which has a very good level of success on turning babies in utero. If you want info on a qualified doctor to perform the technique (it is very easy and non-invasive) you can contact me or contact <a href="http://www.IPCA4kids.com" target="_blank">www.IPCA4kids.com</a> for someone with that training. Good luck!

I know this is late, but the best bf twins advice you can get is on a yahoo group called apmultiples. Do a search in yahoo groups. The author of Mothering Multiples- a LLL book about bf and raising twins - posts there regularly and helped me manage to bf my girls with no problems and never need to supplement.
