Usually not: Risks of a general anesthesia for both mom and unborn child can be problematic when compaired to a spinal or epidural anesthetic. Be sure to talk to your OB and can also have a consult with anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist to discuss these issues/concerns.

Medications: Generally there are some medications that you would breathe and some are given intravenous. There also sometimes is a relaxing or calming medicine given first, if indicated. The anesthesia medications generally act very quickly and you usually wake quickly and comfortably after it is over.
