Hi, Frankie - I am not a multiple mum but I do know that twins, like a single child, will come when they are ready. Most medics would prefer that an induction or c-section be planned for no later than 38 weeks and some will push for about 37 weeks.
Without intervention there have been a few (rare) reports of twins being born at 40 weeks but for the most part they are born earlier even without intervention. Multiples do have in increased risk of early (prem) delivery...
