WEDNESDAY, Oct. 2 (HealthDay News) -- A vaginal delivery for women pregnant with twins may be just as safe as a planned cesarean-section delivery of the babies, a new study says.

In the hands of an experienced obstetrician, there are no differences in serious adverse events for babies or their mothers, the study found.

"Studies have suggested that maybe cesarean delivery is the best way, but there's no evidence to support the swing to cesarean birth. Perhaps the perception is that it's better for the baby," explained the study's lead author, Dr. Jon Barrett, chief of maternal-fetal medicine at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto, Canada.

Expecting mamas- has your doctor said anything to you regarding how you will deliver yet? What plan is in place for your birth?
