Mostly likely, your wife will have a regional block technique for a scheduled C-section. I have been performing regional blocks for awake and comfortable sections for 34 years. In my opinion, there would be no increased anesthetic risk. If your wife required a general anesthetic (unlikely), there would be no increased risk unless her weight was extremely obese such as 375 pounds. Unless she had other medical problems, even the morbidly obese would have an extremely small risk of major problems. Modern anesthesia for C-sections is extremely safe.
