04 Multiple Gestation: Twins & Triplets Vaginally

04 Multiple Gestation: Twins & Triplets Vaginally

Many think twins and triplets have to be born via c-section, but both twins and triplets can be born vaginally. Dr Abdleahk explains how and explains examples from his own patient case load.

The incidence of multiple gestation (twin, triplet and more pregnancy) has gone up significantly over the past several decades, as women are using fertility stimulating drugs for ovulation induction, superovulation, and assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) more and more. 

Being in the vaginal delivery business, we often find women with twins or triplet pregnancies who also desire a vaginal birth. In this episode Dr. Yaakov Abdelhak walks us through who is a great candidate for a vaginal birth in a twin and triplet pregnancy. 

This podcast is all about insider information in the birth business. We are the birth experts and we will continually deliver (pun intended!) the truth about what happens in the labor room, what to expect from pregnancy, and how to make pregnant life and labor easier. 

Finally he shares with us stories from some triplet vaginally deliveries he has had the pleasure of being a part of.

Of note Superfetation is when a second pregnancy occurs after an initial pregnancy has already begun and superfecundation is when you have successive fertilization by two or more ova from the same ovulation occurrence.
