I've only had one child and he was a c-section. We opted for a spinal block because there was some talk about me having to stay flat on my back for an extended period of time. I have really bad tendinitis in my shoulder and I'm unable to lay on my back for very long. I was so fortunate that they let me keep my right arm up and over my chest instead of strapping it down.
