C-section anxiety and fear


I am having a spinal block for a c section. Nevee had a surgical procedure and terrified hardly sums up my fears. I am concerned about meningitis, not being able to breathe, the lower portion of my back is very sensative and I am deathly afraid of getting a spinal. I know thar I will be numbed before the actual injection, but it hardly seems enough. Will Emla cream stop the pinch of the needle? One last thing, I know that much is off limits because of baby, but is there any sedative that I can have before I waddle to the OR? So very nervous!!!!!
