Fetal presentation, or how your babies are situated in your womb at birth, is determined by the body part that's positioned to come out first, and it can affect the way you deliver twins.

At the time of delivery, most twins are head-down (vertex). But one or both babies could be feet or bottom first (breech) or sideways (transverse).

When both babies are head-down, most practitioners recommend trying for a vaginal birth. But you can count on having a scheduled c-section if your first twin (meaning the one that's lower in your uterus, who will be born first) isn't head down.

During the last trimester of your pregnancy, your provider will do an ultrasound to check your babies' presentation.

Here are the possibilities for how your twins may be positioned in the womb.
