First off, please dont bash or treat me like i am stupid . it is against my beliefs to get an epidural, so if i have to have a c section, is there any alternatives that a doc is willing to do? i have been wondering this for a while, and finally got the nerve to ask.

Against what kind of belief? I am curious.. I know of religious beliefs that won't take blood - but an epidural does not give you any kind of blood. A spinal block is similar, but different - it is inserted directly in your back.
Epi and Spinal block are the most common used since the mother is awake and aware during the c-section and general anesthia actually increases risk of complications for the mother.
