  2. I had a planned homebirth of (surprise!) twins December 28. I was 38 weeks. I was expecting a 10 lb boy, but had a 6lb 15 oz breech baby girl, followed by her surprise sister, who was 4 lbs 13 oz. It was an incredible birth and I'm grateful every day that my body proved it could do the job it was designed to do!

  4. I watched that video over and over again when I was pregnant. I clung to hope and watched it every day as my twin pregnancy went over 40 weeks. I finally had a natural drug free delivery at 40+6 days. 7 pound 8 boy and 6 pound 2 girl. My babies are 5 weeks old. Carrying and birthing twins was an amazing achievement.

  5. I love that video so much. I was not able to give birth to my twins vaginally for medical reasons but It always makes me so happy to watch the stories of women who DID have their babies the way their bodies intended them to be born. Like the vid says, not all multiples can or should be born naturally but for the vast majority vaginal birth is the best way.

  8. My ID girls were born at 36 weeks vaginally at the hospital. They are 1 year and both doing great but how I wish I had homebirth. I use to stare at this video when I was pregnant.
