Congrats, our daughter was breech and they did a scheduled C Section. They gave her an epidural and she was awake for the whole thing and I sat by her head as well. They started the incision and our daughter kept poking her foot out. The doctor and staff kept laughing because they couldn't keep her foot out of the way!! When they put someone under the anesthesiologist sits by the head to monitor breathing and administer the drugs that's why you weren't allowed in. We had the choice for her to be awake or asleep. She wanted to see her as soon as she was born. Plus side for me I got to hold her for two hour while they closed up and my wife was in recovery.
