In brief: No
C-sections carry the complications of surgery and anesthesia.
If the twins are presenting both head first and are size appropriate for the mother, then a trial of labor could possible be considered. In any other presentation such as breech (bottom first) then caesarian section should be seriously considered.

In brief: Absolutely!
80% of twins are delivered abdominally in the us nowadays, reflecting the increased risk of death or perinatal injury for the second twin with vaginal delivery.
I recommend cesarean section for all twins - talk yo your maternal-fetal medicine specialist to see if that is a good choice for you!

But, if you've always had easy births, twins can be delivered vaginally especially if they're both head down. If the first if breech, c-section is safer. If the second is breech or transverse, both options are available depending on your OBs experience. Talk to your OB if you want a vaginal trial-it is safe in the right hands.
