that picture of the scalp after a vacuum extraction is horrendous. If it is used properly that should not happen! I have seen it a few times though with over zealous doctors and too much suction.
I would say wait and see what position the bottom twin is in before you agonize over it. If it is breech that would make your decision for you. The only thing is too that if they are twin they should be smaller too.
I've had both a c-section and 2 v-bacs, the recovery from my episiotomy was worse than the c-section. With the c-section I was up and walking in 4-5 days and feeling good with the tear I had with my first v-bac I was in pain for 8 weeks. I did the v-bac again and that time was so much better no tear or anything, this time I have no Idea what im gonna do as I want my tubes tied.
I feel like I want to go natural if the babies are small and head down and not posterior, but even then I really dont want another episiotomy, they suck!!!
Good to hear someone say C sections arenet as bad tho!
with the history im surprised that the midwifes /hospital havnt advised u to have a cesearean already...i know sumone who had two chidren naturally and both nerly died both times cos of the curve in her spine and dilation problems..uv got to do wat safe 4 u and babies xxx
Thanks, I'll talk to the hospital next month, they might well reccommend a c section altho my midwife doesnt think they will. Its just such a hard decision as the recovery is a lot worse. And having four kids to look after alone is going to be hard. I just wish I could know what will happen with a natural birth!!!!!! Anyone got a crystal ball?!
Easy for me to say (I keep trying to believe in my own advice before I birth in July!) read as much as possible about how your body works during labour and birth (not easy with two kids to look after!) I know you read OMGtriplets twin birth story with one breech
I'm sure here in the UK breech and twins are automatically recommended a c-section
