Do I have to try a vaginal birth if I am expecting twins? Can i choose a c-section even if first one is head down?

In brief: Great question

Most ob's i work with consider vaginal birth for twins only with women who are delivering early and with all favorable indicators.
They rather deliver them c-section than worry about the second twin hanging up in delivery. Discuss this with your OB and have a game plan ahead of time.Coming in during early labor may give you the most options.
