In brief: Spinal or epidural

The regional anesthetic with either a spinal or an epidural is the preferred way to perform this operation.
It is safer for the mother, as well as lets her see the baby as they are born. Talk to your anesthesiologist about your options.

In brief: Spinal

A spinal or epidural does not give medication to the baby, so it is preferred.
But it takes a while to take effect general anesthesia is generally used in emergency situations to get the baby out quickly.
