Two twin birth questions

1) Did you do a birth plan for your twin birth? I did for my first baby, although it all went out of the window after I'd been in labour for 3 days.
What decisions can be made in advance with a twin birth? What choices will I have?
I realise that all has to remain open, depending on gestation at birth, position, well-being of babies etc.

2) If your second baby was breech in a VB, did you have a breech birth or ECV? I've read that having a breech birth generally gives better results in terms of avoiding distress to baby 2.

I didn't make a plan, there were so many unknowns with a twin birth that I decided to just go with it.

I had my twins vaginally at 36 weeks and twin 2 was breech. There was a lot of people in the room observing as breech births are rare these days but everything went to plan. Twin 2 came 15mins after Her sister with only a couple of pushes. She was 6lbs1 so a good size too.

I didn't do a birth plan, I had complications in the third trimester and knew I wouldn't have many choices and that anything could happen, so I just went with the flow.

My second baby was born breech, vaginally at 34 weeks.

Didn't make a plan. No one ever suggested I did.

Both of mine were breech so I was told I was having an ELCS.

No plan here either, 35 wks vaginal birth, first struggled and had forceps, second footling breech
