Nuts in New Zealand are super super expensive, $170 for nuts would get me 7-8 mixed bags of 200-500gm of nuts.
Those pay and weigh are expensive. For oats you can just buy the home brand, from the supermarket. Or I don't see why they don't go to Costco? That will probably work out cheaper.

I take it they don't have any private health insurance after listening to Chloe's wisdom tooth/teeth saga.

Are they still Vegan? Chloe doesn't post about food anymore other than the one about junk food today. They don't have vegan in their bio description (not sure if they ever did, just seems like something Chloe would do) and the only other mention of food recently was someone commenting they saw Ro online at IKEA buying hotdogs. Does IKEA do vegan hotdogs? It's been a long time she she posted any staged photos of meals.

On a side note, why is she acting like shes too tired to feed them properly when Ro has always been the main caretaker, house keeper and cook?

I guess IKEA has plant based hot dogs now they got some when they got those new storage systems for the kids’ rooms. They’re still vegan she shows what they eat in the clogs but hasn’t been posting on social media about them as much.

I was thinking the same thing! I know she started showing herself cooking more when she got super into showing their plates all lined up and when she was losing weight (e.g. the infamous using water to sauteed everything...) but in their earlier vlog days it was always Ro cooking! I get the feeling she's trying to curate her image now more than ever (and knows how lazy she's come across pre-twin-pregnancy) as I also noticed in a vlog she mentions her taking the older boys out for a treat or something...and if you didn't know it would sound like she was hopping in the car and driving them herself. But we all know she doesn't have a license and chauffeuring is also Ro's job. She really doesn't like to give him credit, though. :?

I’ve been watching their YouTube/Instagram and yes, they’re still vegan. The IKEA hotdog were their new plant-based ones and the pizzas they’ve been ordering are vegan. She occasionally shows them eating and it’s the usual broccoli and leaves and not much else.

I can’t believe she’s trying to opt for a natural birth when twin A is in breech. That just sounds needlessly complicated, stressful, painful and dangerous for both babies. It’s hard enough delivering one baby in breech, but when there’s a second one waiting to be delivered after it...

I wonder how the heck she managed that.
Is she home birthing with a non registered midwife?

She didn’t say home birth in the vlog she said natural birth probably meaning a vaginal brith without medication.

I’ not a specialist but it really surprises me that they would consider in a multiple pregnancy with a breech baby try a “natural” birth. Also she had triplets some years ago by c section, that complicates things.

I don’t know why people insist with “natural”. You know what else is natural? Death. Babies and mothers dying in childbirth. Completely natural. This is not just the twins, she has 6 other children that need her.

I wouldn’t risk it.

It's a win win win for her with the crunchy community.

If she dies she's a martyr.

If she's transferred to hospital then she's a victim of evil modern medicine even if her and both babies survive.

If she does manage to birth twins vaginally even more so once breech she will be smug forever.

I honestly don't think she thinks of the possibility of one or both of the babies dying.

Yeah, it's a risk that's just not worth it. She doesn't even have to worry about the extended recovery time that much since her other kids are older and she has a partner at home! The chance of her vaginal delivery having complications must be pretty high, even /if/ baby A turns (which at this point I'm assuming they won't).

It’s very common in Australia to birth twins vaginally. Not everything needs extensive intervention like American births seem to “need”.

She said a natural birth, not a home birth. So she will be in a hospital and have access to a c-sect if she needs one. As much as I dislike a lot of things about her, what she’s saying is pretty standard for Australian health care.

Agreed - totally do-able. I’m also in Australia, and my best friend was able to give birth to twins vaginally, with one of the babies in a breech position - it was twin b tho, not the twin closest to her cervix. She was given an epidural/spinal block tho, just in case the birth was to become an emergency c.

I'm in the UK, our maternity care is very natural and 40% of twin births are vaginal here, but it's not recommended when you've had a previous C section, and not when the lower baby is breech.
After personally having bad experiences with natural deliveries of singletons and having friends had emergency sections I'd be opting for a planned C section if it were me. Her baby might still turn, of course, but might not.

This is not exactly my field of expertise, but I do doubt a VBAC with twin A being breech would be recommended. I agree that in Australia, we have less medical interventions than in the USA, but I’m pretty sure when baby A is breech in a twin pregnancy, that is a significantly more complicated and risky delivery. Especially if they are footling breech as the baby could start to be delivered before the cervix is fully dilated and that would put both babies at risk. Not to mention the fact that Chloe has had 4 other pregnancies, one being multiples again, which puts her at higher risk for complications with the placentas and bleeding. I get your point about the standards being different here, but this isn’t a “regular” delivery, there are a number of factors that put mum and babies at greater risk in this case.

That was my point, she's not a typical woman attempting vaginal delivery of twins. This is her fifth pregnancy in a relatively short amount of time. This is her second set of multiples. She had high order multiples and this will be a VBAC. If one of the babies in breech that just adds to the risks probably the riskiest of all these issues.
