Hi there, 5 years ago I had episiotomy. Seriously I ccould only feel the cut but not the pain as I was pushing my girl out and it was done at the very moment before my girl popped out.
As for the stitching,you could feel yourself being poked,but that was bearable. whether there's any anesthesia or not I'm not very sure as everything happen so fast and I was really tired during the stitching up.
Dont think about all the pain all these cos it'll only make you nervous. When the time comes,you'll be amazed with the amazing pain threshold you had. ^^
