Abstract

The rate of Caesarean sections is on an increase and with it an increased awareness among the mothers to remain pain free during and after the surgery. This has put anesthesiologists to explore possibilities and options other than the routine methods of surgical analgesia. The cons and pros of using opioids, NSAID’s, nerve blocks and regional techniques, all have been scrutinized and the associated disadvantages and side effects discussed.
