Hi Kristy,

Thank you for your enquiry. There is a higher incidence of caesarians with twin births. This is due to a higher number of complications. If you are having a healthy pregnancy and there are no complications, then a natural birth is the preferred option. Sometimes, problems can occur with the position of the twins but if the first twin has its head down, there is more chance of a natural delivery. You need to talk to your health care providers and if you are not happy with their decisions, you can seek another opinion. Remember it is your choice and if you feel uncomfortable about something you can chose something else.

Best wishes,
Alex.
