A MUM has claimed she had a cesarean without any pain-relief – and how it’s put her off ever having kids again.
Fi Oates, 22, who lives in Wales, shared her horrifying story with her TikTok followers, telling them how she had “felt every last thing.”
A cesarean birth, also known as a c-section, is an operation that allows babies to be delivered through a cut made in the belly and womb.
The procedure is often carried out if a vaginal birth is deemed too risky.
Normally an epidural anaesthetic is given to pregnant patients to help numb the pain, however, for Fi this wasn’t an option.
In the comments of her TikTok video, which has since received almost 140,000 views, Fi claims that her epidural failed and her high risk birth meant doctors with left with little choice.
She said: “Nothing worked on me and there was no time because both me and my baby had sepsis so they had to get her out as quick as possible.
“I begged to be put to sleep but they couldn’t risk it because I had sepsis and I was at risk of going into a coma.”
