Will I feel it or be given pain relief before they start stitching?

The area of skin will always be checked for sensation. For example if you had an epidural which is still working well in numbing you even after the birth you won''t necessarily need anything more. If you had a normal delivery of course you would be offered a local anaesthetic to the area, a bit ''nippy'' as it goes in and then you will feel little. No pain, but the sensation of tugging maybe. Tears are always stitched back in layers, so it may seem like it taking a long time. Try to ignore it and focus on your baby or partner to distract you.
