Do they give you anesthesia for pregnancy? If yes, then which anesthesia is given?
Hello, Anaesthetics are used during tests and surgical operations to numb sensation in certain areas of the body or induce sleep. This prevents pain and discomfort and enables a wide range of medical procedures to be carried out. Anesthetics consist of a number of medicines that can cause side effects in some people. There are various side effects that can be experienced after having a specific type of anesthetic. Is anesthesia given during childbirth? If yes, then which anesthesia is given?
@glorey Hello, Yes they give anesthesia during pregnancy. According to studies, it is safe for the baby. A spinal block or epidural is preferred for most cesarean deliveries because the baby is exposed to the lowest amount of medication and the mother can still actively participate in the baby's birth. However, general anesthesia may be necessary in some cases. Regional anesthesia (also called epidural, spinal, or systemic anesthesia) is the most common and effective pain relief. Regional anesthesia greatly reduces or eliminates pain throughout the birthing process. It can also be used if a cesarean section becomes necessary.
