This was a cool birth story! And it happened in a hospital. I know some of you are going to cringe that she even attempted a vaginal birth after two cesareans; others may be worried about her having a vaginal birth of twins (with or without a C-section). But even leaving that aside, it was a great story.
On some nurse’s blog recently, I read that they had a surprise twin VBAC — the VBAC was planned, but two babies were a surprise — and the blogger said that twin pregnancy is a contraindication to VBAC. I’m assuming because the uterus is stretched larger to accommodate two babies, thus thinning the uterus more than usual, but I’ll have to look that up. Anybody have any research on that? It makes sense, but then some things that ought to make sense don’t always pan out. The doctor who attended the birth didn’t seem to think it was that big of a problem (or maybe that part was not included in the story).
All in all, I enjoyed reading the story. Very cool for her to discover (with the help of a great L&D nurse) that her body actually worked!
