They put in it after the epi/spinal. Mine came out after the drugs wore off... so it bloody hurt.
I was very uncomfortable for a week after the catheder came out. It hurt to sit/stand etc. Hurt way more than my stiches post V birth and much more pain. Ended up using pawpaw ointment externally to reduce the inflammation and burning sensation plus drank heaps of water to flush the system and possible UTI. Also used to pour water over myself as I went to the toilet to reduce the burning sensation. Or had a shower every time I had to pee.

Mine was done after my spinal/epi do I did not feel it go in.
When the nurse took it out a few days later (I was delayed getting out of bed due to blood loss so it was left in) it didn't hurt. Just felt weird.

The catheter caused topical damage when I was pushing bubs out. DD had a 38cm head and i thing churned that whole area up a bit
Because I suffered no ill effects from the actual birth I felt the pain from the catheter more.
Never thought a small catheter could cause more pain than a 4kg bub!!!

Hi i gave birth to my breech DD 12mths ago via c-section.
For me, they inserted the catheter after the eppidural and just before surgery. Yes i was completely numb and felt nothing. Although they told me what they were doing and said i might feel a little "tickle"!!! - i felt not a thing.
Believe you me after 9mths of feeling the urge to pee every 5 mins, having a catheter IS THE MOST AMAZING FEELING EVER! its like your bladder is on holidays! I was marveled by the thought of pee-ing...and not knowing about it!! I watched that pee bag fill up without any discomfort!!! amazing stuff!
It was taken out on day 2- ohhhh and i had to pee on my own again.
Yes i felt it, its a small tube being ever so gently pulled from inside you. After everything you go thru with a c-section, getting the catheter removed is nothing, really. It felt weird for alll of 2 seconds, but i was more dissapointed in the fact that i had to feel that urge to pee again lol
Hope that helps!

My first was after the spinal. With my 2nd they refused to do it after and instead did it before. I got a student middie who did it wrong and had to redo it twice. It was actually rather painful
