That depends on a few things. there are different types of anesthesia for c-sections. Your doctor may use general anesthesia in which case you wouldn't even know what was going on and would have a hard time bonding with/ feeding your baby because you would still be groggy afterwards. A spinal block is also an option which I believe is similar to an epidural but instead of only blocking the pain you would be completely numb from the waist down. An epidural would dull the pain and all you would feel, if done right is pressure. Of course you will need some sort of anesthesia but the best thing would be to discuss your options with your dr and figure out what's best for you. Good luck!
