A twin home birth is not something that most people come across often. A lot of people think that twins NEED to be delivered in an OR via c section… and while that CAN be true, it’s also true that you can birth twins vaginally, at home and with one baby even being BREECH. (This was a unicorn birth FOR SURE!)
I got a call from Vilate around 9pm. She was calling to let me know that she thought labor was starting and that she’d keep me into the loop, but to be ready to leave once I got the call.
Months earlier during our first consultation, she had mentioned that she labors quickly. This was her 4th and 5th baby, so I trusted the knowledge she had about her births packed up all my bags and got them ready to go. About an hour later I received a text from Vilate.
“You can come now.”
Soon after twin A was born, Vilate handed the baby to her sister while she prepared for the birth of twin B. As she laid back, her husband helped support her slowy down to the ground so she could push.
Twin B’s little feet started making their way out when the midwife said “twin b is presenting breech!” With focus and grace, the midwife helped deliver baby B breech. He was born a quick 4 minutes after his “older” brother!
After both twins were born, Vilate started having some intense after birth pains. With both twins in her arms, you could feel the joy between her and her husband exploding.
