Twin VBAC??


I had an emergency csection at 31 weeks with my little boy because he was footling breach.

I'm not pregnant with twins, it's still early days but I'm already thinking about the birth. I'm hoping I can attempt a VBAC, has anyone been successful??

I'm sorry I don't have any info, I wonder if your dr will even let you try? I did deliver my twins vaginally, in an operating room which is standard for twins.

I'm hoping they will at least let me try, even if it's in an operating theatre and under epidural / spinal just in case they have to do another section.

How many weeks did your twins arrive and were they both head down??. Xx

Mine were both head down, my dr said I could try as long as baby a was head down. I delivered at 35 weeks 3 days. They were born 1 hour apart

When I had my son 19 months ago he was footling breach and 9 weeks early and they did say they were OK with my attempting to deliver vaginally but I was dangerous for baby and they'd prefer to get him out by section as he has a much better chance that way.

The more I look into it the more it's looking like another section, unless the stars align and everything is perfect close to term both babies head down its gong to be best for them to be born by section i think.

Depending on the type of c-section you had, totally doable. I was set up to do a VBAC, but decided against an induction and opt'd for a repeat c-section. Twin A was a lot smaller than Twin B and the doctors were concerned about the birth canal closing up on Twin B and requiring a section anyway. My doctors also wouldn't do a breech delivery if twin B flipped. If Twin B was the smaller one it would have been a whole different story. She could have been delivered breech or just fine with the induction since the bigger baby would have been delivered already it should be easier to then deliver the smaller one. But there was a significant difference - a pound, which caused all the concerns.
