This is a really REALLY silly question as I'm not planning to have a c-section. But if it comes to it - what happens? I am SO scared of needles it's not even funny and the thought of having a spinal or and Epidural makes me want to run and hide. I can only just about cope with blood tests and even then I can't go on my own and have to hold someones hand and want to cry (even though I try and act brave!). I'm less scared of labour pain than I am of having an epidural And after you go get numbed, what happends then. All you ever see on birthing programmes is someone laying behind a screen (if they want to), the baby coming out and then that's it! I'm sure there is more to it than that right? Cheers in advance ladies for answering yet another strange question.
