New here, so I'm still just getting a feel for the board.<br><br>
I had an emergency c/s with #1 almost a year ago and am now 13 weeks pregnant with twins. I have found a doctor I like who is supportive of the idea, but it's so nice to hear success stories from women who've been in this boat.<br><br>
Very curious - do most doctors require both babies to be vertex at birth or just baby A?<br><br>
(We have to have help getting pregnant, so I've been with my reproductive specialist up until now and haven't had a chance to ask my OB.)<br><br>
TIA!

hugs mama and welcome to mdc! I hope you enjoy the community!<br><br>
I had a vbac a few months ago and have never had twins, but a woman in my birth group VBAC'd twins and another mama a year or two ago (same birth group) did too. You can find her picture/story on the birth group website at <a href="http://www.ithacabirthgroup.org/" target="_blank">http://www.ithacabirthgroup.org/</a> (the gallery section)<br><br>
Our local hospital is very vbac friendly and I believe they don't have a policy about twin orientation but yes, many care providers will push for baby a to be head down. Baby b doesn't have to be though. And other care providers will deliver breech twins so ask around!<br><br>
congrats and happy birthing!

Hi. Welcome to MDC. My situation is the opposite of yours -- C-section with my twins and hoping for a VBAC with this singleton. Anyway, wanted to let you know in case you haven't found it that there is a Parenitng Multiples section under the Parenting header. You may want to ask there if any of the mamas VBAC-ed twins. Although it's under parenting a lot of women who are PG with twins post there, too.<br><br>
My twins are from fertility help, too. Infertility sucks -- glad you found resolution.

A woman I know has five kids from three pregnancies... twins, singleton, twins. The first delivery was a c/s, but she VBACed for the other two. It was a different story of course since her first VBAC was a singleton... but anyway. ;-)
