I am new to this website. And I am new to pregnancy. I had my first ultrasound this morning. We quickly were able to see the heartbeat which is pretty amazing. Then the doctor asked us what else we saw. There are two!!
We then went to her office and discussed for a while. She emphasizes that twins will almost always require cesarean. She has never not done a cesarean for twins. She is also absolutely opposed to birth at home or in a birth center with a midwife, and insists that pregnancy with "complications" should always give birth in the safety of a hospital.
Our gut feeling after this appointment is that we should look for a different OB group that might be more supportive and less frightening.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Are twins really considered "complications"?
