In brief: Yes
There are some medications that can have an effect on the unborn child.
Local anesthetics should not be one of them when used correctly. Discuss your condition with your provider before any procedure and talk about the risks.

In brief: 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.
