I’ve been doing lots of research but really can’t decide. Can you let me know you’re experiences on twin births and recovery times for both c section and vaginal delivery.

My DS (5) was induced at 39 weeks and it was awful 3 day labour and needed forceps in the end. Really don’t fancy going through that again.

I had elective c section last year. Recovery was fine - walked to the park and back 7 days later. Was in hospital 3 days (but had some post birth complications - post natal pre eclampsia- not to do with the c section). Would chose the same again.

Had elective c section for mine, it was wonderful. Recovery so much quicker than I expected.

Elective c-section here too. Not that natural delivery was an option as they were breech and transverse. In hospital around 5 days, as we had feeding issues. Recovery OK though and delivery was calm, planned and quite memorable.

I had a natural birth, needed forceps as twin two was breech but was ok. I gave birth the Wednesday and went home the Friday. I had an episiotomy but was up and moving really quickly and didn't have any issues.
