Around 1 in 65 births are a multiple pregnancy, with around 12,000 sets of twins being born each year. For many parent’s this is a very exciting but daunting time. Putting the idea of raising two babies at the same time aside there are complications in pregnancy and birth to consider.
According to the NHS guidelines with a twins pregnancy you will probably be recommended to give birth in a hospital setting due to the increased chance of complications in a twin birth. Lots of women think that having twins means they will have to have a caesarean section, however, more than 40% of twin births are vaginal, and the odds of this increase if the first baby is head down. There are various different reasons why a caesarean birth might be recommended for your twins birth such as the first baby being breech or transverse, you having a low lying placenta or the twins sharing a placenta. It is also possible to delivery the first twin vaginally but then requiring a caesarean section to deliver the second twin.
For the reason that this many parents to be expecting twins will assume that they can not use hypnobirthing to help with the birth of their babies. This could not be more from the truth!
if anything hypnobirthing is going to be hugely beneficial to any birthing person who has an increased chance of experiencing a more complicated birth such as someone having a multiplies pregnancy.
