Natural all the way, I never had a c-section, But I seen friends who had one, and they had so much pain, and the cut is so big. But now i am so worried I might have one since I am having twins.What was the reason you had the c-section with your twins? I hope and pray I have my babies natural.

Yep, I had to have a c-section with my twins because my son decided not to turn. He had his butt where his head should've been and I tell you, never again! I had my tubes tied after that. And because I have 6 children but mainly because of the c-section. If I never had the c-section, I probably never would've gotten them tied. Another bad thing about that was the epideral. I never had one with my other 4, I had them all the way natural and I was only in labor for no more than 3 hours for all of them. Hard labor that is and 2 of them had to be induced because I was having contractions and wasn't feeling them. ! of them was 1 week late and I got tired of waiting. I would love to have another set of twins cause I absolutely love them but no c-section. Good luck with your twins, you will enjoy them I promise. I pray for you as well that you have them natural also but it is unlikely most of the time. Do you know what you are having? Boys, girls or 1 of each?

Recovery from natural birth is so much quicker than with C-section.

Natural all the way! Even though I can not say I know exactly how a c-section feels, I have had a hysterectomy to compare the pain to....natural seems to be easier to recover from. After my hysterectomy, it was extremely hard to even sit up. I had to roll off the bed. Among other things that would be TMI. LOL Great question. I am interested in reading more answer to come.

Trust me I've had both. Natural is easier, less painful, quicker and it doesn't take as long to heal.

I would prefer natural. When I had my son 8 months ago, I had him natural. Other than mild bleeding I was completely healed in less than a week since I had no abrasions or tears. I heard even though it's a painless procedure you still have to heal. A few of my friends had a c-section almost 2 years ago, and there scar still hurts sometimes.
