I wasn't cut, but my baby boy ripped me. I didn't feel it because I had an epidural.  When the Dr stitched me up all I felt was the tugging but it didn't hurt.

I wasn't cut but I had stitches and no epidural. They froze me for the stitches but it didn't take.  I hate needles and was scared to death but it just felt like a quick pinch. I was too busy with my new baby to really be paying attention though!

It doesn't hurt because they numb you.  It takes a little longer to heal though afterwards because of it.
