Welcome and Congratulations on your twins! So exciting! I do not personally have any experience, but I know that with the right support it can be done safely! If you haven't already, I would suggest you check into your local ICAN chapter. I'm sure they will be able to recommend the best VBAC Dr and share encouragement with you along this journey.

I think finding the right doctor to support your wishes would be a good step as well. I've seen a diary on youtube with a person who did this and her doctor was on her side the whole way. It was truly amazing to watch.

(Disclaimer...I didn't go completely natural...I ended up getting a hit of something when they broke out the forceps.)

Yes you can! I delivered the twins 26 months after my c-section, and my doctor wasn't the least bit concerned about me wanting a VBAC. As mentioned, finding the right doctor/hospital to support you is huge. You'll also need a little bit of cooperation from your babies...usually Baby A has to be head down for you to be allowed to attempt a twin vaginal delivery but it depends on the doctor and hospital.

There might be certain things they ask of you since it is a twin VBAC...my doc/hospital wanted to have everything ready to go in case it turned into an emergency c-section for any reason. I had to deliver in the OR with an OR team there and ready to jump into action. I had to have the epidural catheter in place once I got to 6cm even though they didn't put any meds into it...that way if they needed to do a csection they could have me numb almost immediately. It wasn't at all the calm, serene birth I dreamed of, but it was WAY better than a csection

Good luck! I hope you are able to have the birth you want!

On the ICAN forums for Atlanta, there is a woman who had a VBAC with triplets, but not sure if it was natural (can't remember).

It's totally possible. Join your local ICAN chapter and research all possible options!
