See below: Assuming no contraindications regional anesthesia is better. General anesthesia is safe, but being pregnant with twins increases the chances of you vomiting and aspirating. An anesthesiologist is trained to handle both things either way, so you will be fine either way, but i would encourage regional if possible.

Prefer regional: There are specific concerns with the pregnant patient that would make an anesthesiologist prefer a regional anesthetic for a c-section. Please discuss this with your anesthesiologist before proceeding.

The best and safest: Method of anesthesia during C-section is a spinal anesthesia. General is effective, but riskier for mom and baby.
