    Home vs Hospital Birth for Twins

    You may have been dreaming about having a homebirth when you were first planning your pregnancy. And then when you learned you were having twins, that vision may have gone out the window. Perhaps your doctor told you that delivering twins outside of a hospital is too risky. But is it?  What is the real evidence for determining what is safe for you and your babies? Today we are talking with Dr. Victoria Flores, a fully licensed, obstetrically trained physician who has attended over a thousand births and about 100 out of hospital and we’re going to talk about evidence-based considerations for twin home births.

A great listen if pregnant with twins!

My episode request is for one about at-home dopplers. I’ve always wanted to try one, but I’d love to hear all about them first, especially for twins. Also, how do I do kick counts with twins? Thanks so much for all I’ve learned so far! :)

Great!

I found out I was carrying mono di twins and haven’t been able to get enough of this podcast since. It gives me comfort hearing all of the anecdotes and makes me feel like I am doing my part in research and preparation. Thank you!
