"Breech" is when a baby is born feet first.

I thought these would be the last babies they'll have but according to Fred who knows... I wonder what Mary's opinion is...

Congratulations to Denmark and the Royal Family!

Denmark holds a special place in my heart since I have Danish ancestors.

Actually I read somewhere that if you have twins once your chance to have them again literally doubles! Which is funny because the women would have just had two kids.

How soon after birth is the christening date finalised? Now that the birth countdown is over, I am getting into NAME countdown mode...I was thinking end of March/early April...So they are all named and official before being jetted off to the UK for Will and Kate's wedding in late April

The twins sound healthy and big (in terms of weight for twins) so 3 months of solid breastfeeding will mean they are right to go...5lbs/2.6kgs is pretty good going for twins, my firstborn singleton was 7lbs/3.2kgs....So Mary was carrying a total of 10lbs/6kgs worth of baby in there, plus the extras (placentas), that is a great effort!!! And it was a spontaneous (short) labour and natural birth TWICE...And who said Princess's can't push?

And as for Shirley being a breech birth, if nothing has been reported anywhere else but Australian media, I'mma take it with a grain of salt. I did not hear CP Frederik or the doctor's mentioning anything about a breech birth and they are the only people that have spoken to the media that actually know.

Only a thought on my behalf, nothing more, so don't start scolding me for suggesting the possibility of Mary having an abdomnoplasty in conjunction with the birth
I wouldn't be surprise about that, we will see in the future in a couple of months how does she looks I think Angelina jolie did that

Dr Morten Hedegaard said despite being "a few weeks early", the birth was "natural and normal" but he added the girl had arrived in breech position."

What a mixed news day we are having! I can't believe the twins are here - I thought it would be later in the month. Just 2 days ago I was scrolling through the forums here thinking what a long month of waiting it was going to be, and here they are already!

As for the Christening, maybe Mary will wear a white or cream colored ensemble? I wonder what the chances are of borrowing another House's christening gown for one of the twins. I know that the Houses stick to their own traditions, and this is a rather personal item to be borrowing, but I can totally see CP Victoria lending the Swedish gown to M&F for their twins' big day. She is such a generous person like that.

I hope we get to see Christian and Isabella visiting very soon

This may be premature, but does anyone know what the childcare arrangement will be? Has the CP couple hired a new nanny(ies)?

One thing I think to be quite likely, is that Mary shall wear the ivory and cream lace floral fascinator that she wore to the christenings of her first two children.

I dunno what time it is right now there but I'm assuming we can expect some more visitors today? Btw this may have been asked but did the article state whether or not Marie and Joachim will visit Mary at some point or will they most likely visit them at the palace when they return?

It was reported that Joachim and Marie were out of the country on a private trip and would visit at home on their return.

As Dr Hedegaard was quoted, I doubt that they'd "make it up". Why would they? What would be the point?

Cool

On another Royal Message Board it was stated that Mary had an epidural during labor and delivery. Breech is not only baby's feet are first, it's also when the baby presents bottom down instead of the head. As the little Princess was small enough it should not have presented as great a problem as if she were, 7 or 8 lbs.

Congratulations. Regarding fertility treatments, it is very common today. I'm sure it was that..regardless, the babies are healthy. Cheers.

Ah thanks though the article doesn't mention when they'll visit just that they're away but then again the translations aren't always 100% on the spot.

The Danish Royal Family have said that it was natural conception and natural birth. Who are you to argue that you know something that no one else knows. Why on earth would they say it if it was not true as these days the truth gets out. Why on earth would you say you know better? 38 is not "old" to have a baby, certainly not when it is not your first or are you just one of those mad conspiracy theorists?
