Around 1 in 80 spontaneous pregnancies and 1 in 50 assisted pregnancies result in twin pregnancies in Australia each year. There are many factors that influence the experience of multiple pregnancies (more than one baby) for women. This includes previous birth experiences (if any), the health of the pregnant women and her babies, importantly their growth and presentation, breech or cephalic. It is important that your care is managed by an obstetrician who strives for a balance between evidence based care, a woman centred approach and a doctor who has the clinical skill and experience to deliver the safest outcome for you and your babies.
You deserve to be informed and educated about your options. This includes birthing options appropriate for you and your babies. Although many twin births are facilitated by cesarean section there are certainly times in which a vaginal birth of twins is possible, indeed safe and would be supported by Dr Lionel Steinberg.
