Sleeping Arrangements for Twins?

Hello ladies! The time is drawing nearer and I haven't even begun to wrap my head around everything yet. Big question though. I am and always have been terrified of SIDS. I feel like it's one think that is out of my control when it comes to my babies' safety and it really terrifies me. DS slept in a bassinet in our room for a few months, then he moved to his crib, still in our room until he was like 8 months old. He was only ever allowed to wear a sleep sack and that's it...no blankets, pillows, stuffies, etc. I felt like it was the most I could do to keep him safe.
With two coming, how does this work? I've heard that twins will be most comfortable and feel most secure, sharing a crib for the first few months. This does NOT ease my SIDS fear. With an extra body in the crib, wouldn't that increase the chances of SIDS? If you sleep your twins together (or plan to), how will you do it...side by side? Foot to foot? Head to head?? How can I make their shared sleeping environment as safe as possible, or would I be better off sleeping them in separate cribs?
TIA for any feedback or advice you can give!!
