It's a lot more complicated – it's kind of up to your doctor in the end if you can even do it. But she said mine were good to go. She had done it a lot of times and the doctor did not seem stressed about it at all. And so when we went in, they were born 20 minutes apart. There were no complications, it was very easy and I didn't have to have the recovery of a C-section, so it worked out for us.
