Not all doctors use local during repairs. If you have the epidural you won't need it but I think it depends on how much needs repairing. If only a stitch or two, they may figure it will hurt as much to get the needle to numb you. I'd prefer numbing regardless but it's a non-issue for me. Just ask ahead at an appointment or in a birth plan so that they know and you won't have to think about that when trying to enjoy your new baby.
