View Full Version : Oh Really????
I thought you ladies might appreciate this. It brought me to tears so may I suggest some tissues nearby?? :yes:
I always said that I would give it a shot if ever I had twins.
Ohhh I really really love this clip... I bawled my eyes out when I first seen it... If I ever have twins I too will be giving natural ago..
Beautiful clip... :thumbsup:
OOHHH that was so beautiful!!! Wow so having twins and even triples CAN be born naturally!!! Those women are so inspirational :goodvibes:
I want twins now:yes::D:yes:
I'm actually amused that so many people automatically assume twins/multiples=c/s!
My twin brothers were born naturally in hospital at 39 weeks. Almost 8 pounds each, at no point during pregnancy or birth did anyone even suggest a c/s to my mother!
I saw this a while ago, it's great!
Unfortunately the reality is that most multiples are born by elective caesarean. I think it's only about 20% now that are born vaginally in Australia. So it's not really surprising that people make this assumption. It's sad that women and babies aren't being given the option to birth normally...and if they are it usually comes with the condition of a compulsory epidural in case there's a problem with the positioning of the second twin. Which....is likely when an epidural is in and the mother has to labour supine and immobilised.
*sigh*...it's a self fulfilling prophecy.
My poor sister desperately wanted to have her twins naturally, however she didn't have a choice due to complications and one of them was in breach. It makes me sad for her. She has also now been told that if she has another baby it has to be another c-section. I opened her eyes up to the world of VBAC, and the fact that her OB is FOS. For the record, she lives in a very industrialised Asian country, where they definitely prefer c-sections!

My best friend recently had her second baby in China. Late in her pregnancy her baby was measuring about 9lb on scans and they tried every trick in the book to badger her into a c/section...she told them to get stuffed because she'd birthed her first 9lb baby naturally.
They told her that she was taking a stupid risk and her labour would be horrible...yada yada.
She birthed her nearly 10lb baby in under three hours with no dramas whatsoever. Just shows what "they" know huh. :)
If a care provider tells a woman she can't have a twin vaginal birth, or can't have a vaginal birth due to breech, or can't have a vaginal birth due to having had a past caesarean section (or more), she should run a mile and find a care provider who truly cares about women, babies and has a great knowledge of the process, not just a fear of "every birth is a risk waiting to happen". Obstetricians tend to scare women with stories of what they have seen......they are obstetricians! (specialists for problems), of course they have seen all the bad stuff, and that is the problem....women need a care provider who is able to deal with emergency, but who completely trusts the process of birth as a normal, non-medical event. Some obs are great, with a healthy birth philosophy......but most have never even seen a homebirth...how can one judge something they are not familiar with? I truly believe that natural occurances, such as twins are most often better off born at home, free from the risk of unessesary interventions, which do often cause more harm than good. If a tragedy happens in the hospital, people are devistated, but if a tragedy happens at home, people put it down to the fact it was at home. Like sh** doesn't happen in hospitals!!! Fact is birth is as safe as life, and when we start mucking around with the normal process, that is when things get risky. That was a lovely video :)

I have a picture of OB's sitting around together...
"I had to do an emergency cs cause I had a woman with a baby THIS big"
"Well I had a baby TTTHHHIIIISSS big"
"That's nothing, I had twins..."
Not all ob's experience the **** births, most of them are just around to provide one.
having a twin mum who does end up with complications (it makes you wonder if she had felt like she had a choice or felt empowered maybe her birth would have been different) but when something does go wrong it like "SEE, we told you so, silly you for trying!"
Anyone who can avoid hospitals when birthing really are the lucky ones these days.
im having twins next year and i really really really want to give birth to them naturally, but of course like any pregnancy it doesnt always go to plan. :fingerscrossed: it does!
