I am saying that every procedure and any kind of anesthetic has risks. Birthing a child in any kind of way is never risk free.
So if a spinal is a no no, then she'll have to choose an epi or full anesthetic which have equally undesirable side effects. Not just the spinal.
Have you had an elective cesarean after the emergency cesarean? If so, what pain relief did you go for after the anesthetist has had a good informative chat with you and told you everything you wanted and needed to know about all drugs on hand?
With the emergency cesarean, you don't get a lot of time to think and choose what you want. With an elective cesarean, the hospital will give you all the information you need, well before you have your cesarean.
I am sure this will be the case for the OP too if she decides to go that way.

In all honesty, my CS was elective but I never met my anesthetist (too tired to spell right) until he was going my procedure. I never discussed drugs, or had any choice in what they gave me.
I didn't care. If I'd asked I probably would have got the info. But I would have done what they recommend anyway so it didn't really matter.
Except I still don't know if I had an Epi or spinal block!!! I couldn't feel anything, that's all I cared about.

It amazed me some of the things i didn't think about until someone suggested researching them. Anyhow apparently my opinion or suggestions aren't valid or warranted so I'll just leave it there.

I had a few big fibroids so knew I would have a c section and it was booked in at my 12 weeks scan, it was honestly a great experience, I had never been in hospital before! I loved my OB and anesthetist , I literally turned up to the hospital and checked in and 2 hours later had DS in my arms! My recovery was easy, absolutely no problems and I was easily walking around the next day

I was told only 1% of pregnant women get cholestasis. Though have read that it's dropped in the last 10 years to about 0.7%, yet they can not explain why.
I wont be able to have more kids, but if I could it would be the decider whether or not I was going to. I really do not want that itch again. I still have scars on my back and thighs
