Is it safe to be administered local anaesthesia during pregnancy?

Yes: Local anesthetics are class b drugs in pregnancy, that is, there is no known risk in pregnancy. Local anesthetic is the drug that injected in a spinal for a c-section. Decades of experience with this have shown local anesthetic medicines to be safe.

Sometimes it : Is necessary, but if possible it is avoided. Elective surgeries are postponed until after delivery. For labor, a regional technique is preferred.
