Others may benefit from another type of pain relief such as epidural anesthesia. A member of the anesthesia team will place the tiny epidural catheter or tube after numbing your skin with a local anesthetic. Anesthesia and pain management consultants will be happy to refer particular questions or arrange pre-anesthesia interviews with one of our obstetric anesthesiologists.
While rare, if this happens, the anesthesiologist may have to reinsert the catheter. Also, the pregnant uterus pushes up against the stomach, often causing heartburn and nausea even before labor starts. This tiny plastic tube is so thin and flexible you wont feel it, even when lying on your back.
Fees are determined by the length of time spent and the difficulty of the type of anesthesia given. We will be glad to answer any questions for you during the cesarean section. The anesthesiologist will check the level of numbness to be sure it is high enough before surgery is allowed to begin. That is why we ask that you limit your intake of food and liquids prior to surgery or when in active labor.
