In the scripts it says the anesthesia is in my arms… can I move them?
While the anesthesia is in your arms and hands, you can still move them. They are not in the limp/loose suggestion. Also the anesthesia you are creating allows you to feel normal touch, just no pain.
This confuses some moms at first. The reason why the arms are included in the anesthesia area is for IV’s etc. But you CAN move them!
Maybe think of it as dental anesthesia. When the dentist numbs your mouth, you can still move your jaw and tongue, but it just has no feeling.
