Variable times: You can start taking them early after delivery but since you should not be having sex til six weeks post partum it is best to wait til the sunday of the week your first period starts. If need be the pill can be started earlier but remember if you are breast feeding you want to wait til your milk supply is well established before starting the pill or it may reduce the amount of milk you produce.

Trust: Ask general questions about pregnancy , prenatal care, and expectations for labor and delivery. Ask if they have partners who may be covering their practice at the time of your delivery. Most importent is to be comfortable and be able to communicate. Remember you have to trust what medical information they give you so you can be comfortable and relaxed when you need them most.

No: In this day of modern obstetrics most women opt to have cesarean section for twins and mulitple gestation. If this is a twin pregnancy, term, with the first twin head first and normal sized babies then vaginal delivery is a good option. You should discuss your options with your caregiver as each pregnancy is different and circumstances change. Multiples greater than two usually require cesarean.
