In brief: ABSOLUTELY!!!
Your should be followed by a board certified obgyn and a perinatologist, that is what I do with ever pt I have with twins, if you have twins you should not be followed by a midwife!

In brief: No
It depends on many factors including the experience of your doctor and the ability of your local hospitals to manage multiples.
Many docs are quite capable of managing twins and only referring to specialists for complications. Others are not so comfortable and prefer a specialist manage twin pregnancies. Have an open conversation with your provider.
