I've had one emergency c-section with my first and the rest have all been successful VBACs.I would really love to have the twins vaginal,but i'm worried about placenta issues.One of the OBs in my practice said she doesn't suggest me attempting a VBAC with identical twins.I haven't really asked my doctor who will be doing my c-section yet,I was gonna discuss this at my next visit just to get his opinion.

Has anyone here had identicals with only one placenta and had a successful vaginal delivery?

I don't know alot about the delivery of identicals, but from what I do know, I personally would be too nervous to attempt it if my dr. didn't recommend it. I'm not really sure though. Mine were fraternal and I had to have a c-section b/c 6 months after Corinne was born I had a major surgery in my pelvic area and a hip replacement so it was too risky to try a vaginal delivery again.

Is the Dr not wanting to do a VBAC at all or just because they are twins?

I wouldn't think that being your twins being Identical would be an issue...

I'm sorry that I don't have much advice. I asked my Dr's opinion on how he thought I should deliver (while in labor, lol) and went with it. After he delivered them (C-section) he told me had I gone vaginally, I would have ended up with a c-secion after baby a came out, so I was VERY thankful that I listened to him.

I believe it was because of them being twins and having just the one placenta.I'm gonna ask my OB though and see what he says because i've had 3 successful VBACs.

These are my first, but my doctor doesn't treat identicals w/ one placenta different than twins with two placentas. Both babies just have to be head down for me to deliver vaginally. I also have to be healthy without high bp or anything else going on.

Thanks for posting this.I feel like i'm a walking time bomb sometimes because of the things i've read on the internet about identicals sharing the same placenta.I have since learned not to look anything up! My OB just said that i would most likely just have more ultrasounds.
