Do I have options for anesthesia for a cesarean section?

Most C-sections are done under regional anesthesia—an epidural block or a spinal block—so you can stay awake for the delivery and have a more direct experience during childbirth. This type of anesthesia will numb only the lower part of your body. If there’s an emergency, however, your surgical team might use general anesthesia.
