2nd VBAC with twins?

I had a c section with my first set of twins and then a successful vbac with my next baby. I am now pregnant with twins and am wondering if I will be able to vbac this time. Anyone vbac with twins?

Re: 2nd VBAC with twins?

I haven't. But...just before my vbac with dd2, I found out she was breech. There was an ob near me who did lots of vaginal breech deliveries, and when I called him up to talk about a breech vbac, he told me that the day before he had done a vbac for twins where both babies were breech! I don't see why you couldn't vbac twins. Most providers would want baby a to be head down though, but obviously there are providers out there who are comfortable delivering the other variations with twins also. Good luck.

Re: 2nd VBAC with twins?

I have never had twins but I have heard several stories of ladies that did have them vbac. I would also think that since you have already had a successful vbac that you would be a great candidate for one. Probably the most important thing is finding a supportive dr. Have you checked with your local Ican group for a good dr?

There is a story online, might even be in ican, that is inspiring. She either had 3 or 4 c-sec. then went on to have twins, at home.

Maybe someone will no the link. I think it is you tube.

I was going to VBAC my twins but they did not cooperate =/ but my docs/midwives were supportive. My deliveries went like this vag/unnessiary cs/cs with twins because I had a butt in my pelvis/vba2c

Re: 2nd VBAC with twins?

My current dr won't even consider letting me vbac. So frustrating!!! Now I have to try to find a local dr who will support my hope for a second vbac.

VBAC is now endorsed by the American Academy of Obstetrics or whatever the technical name is, so this always surprises me!

Re: 2nd VBAC with twins?

Check out this blog
itstwinsanity.com

From her blog " My first birth was in a hospital, second birth was a planned homebirth that ended in a cesarean (no labor) after my midwife dropped me, third birth was my HBAC (homebirth after cesarean) with twin girls, and fourth birth was another planned homebirth that ended in another cesarean (no labor) for TTTS with twin boys."
Also, She just had her 7th at home.
By my count she has had 2 sections and 2 vbacs.

Re: 2nd VBAC with twins?

I have not had twins, though kind of hope I do, so I can get two babies for the price of one morning sick-filled pregnancy. Anyway, I have had two vbacs. The ob I found for my first vbac was fantastic, but then moved. I went to her recommended ob, who was supportive but not as great. Even she said that after one vbac, it's almost like you are scar-free in how they treat you at the hospital. I would imagine your biggest difficulty is finding a dr who is willing to do vaginal birth with twins, at all.

I used my local midwifery site to find a natural/vbac friendly ob. That might be a good place for you to start looking. A supportive ob is key! Good luck!
