It’s still the plan! My midwife is comfortable as long as ER is on call and knows to keep a bed open. Water birthing twins is safer than a bed home birth, so we’re probably going to stick with the water route! Fine by me, I love a good soak. I’m excited to be able to eat during labor.
Do you still get to home birth? Twins is a whole 'nother ball of wax.

I think that in Alaska you can home birth with twins... but I think we are more lax than some other states.

I hear it helps. Especially with first time mamas. Labors are longer and you lose energy quickly.
It must depend on the mama and the kind of labor... we have a friend who actually walks all through labor... :rolleyes:

Can't imagine.

Here there is (for 2 of the 5 labors) a whole bunch of vomiting at start. And then after that for the 4 actual labors there was intense labor where speech is mostly not possible. So no talking, no drinking, no eating. The last one labor had barely started before we went for the C.... so, that was very different.

So maybe a saline bag would be nice. :)
