I had to have an emergency c-section for twin b.  I breastfed, and am still breastfeeding (the boys are now 9 months, almost 10 months).  It's been going really well!  One thing I'd recommend is that you do pump to keep up milk production if your boys need to take some formula at first.  The doctors had me give my boys some formula at the hospital to help them put on weight.  I pumped each time, and have never needed any formula since leaving the hospital.
