C-section vs Natural in a twin delivery
Hi There

I am 17 weeks pregnant with Twins. My doctor has told my husband and I that the babies will be born by Caeser as most twins are. He has explained that the reason for a caeser is that problems can arise. He has said that the problem is usually not with the first twin that is delivered but rather with the second. In your experience is a caeser a better option for twin deliveries as my husband and I are both keen to go natural.

Please advise.

This depends on many factors, not least the position of twins close to term. It is probably a decision you will have to wait to make till closer to the time and review everything then.
