Goal: To determine whether the novel method is successful in blocking both ilioinguinal nerves to lessen postoperative pain following a caesarean surgery. Materials and Techniques: Between January 2022 and January 2023, 300 patients were enrolled in this study at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Departments of the Faculty of Medicine at Al-Azhar University. 150 of these patients received Bupivacaine infiltration on both sides close to the anterior superior iliac spine, and 150 received normal saline injection at the same locations. Results: The study compared the two groups and discovered significant differences in the timing of analgesic requests, the interval before the patient's first ambulation, the length of the hospital stay, the postoperative pain score, and the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting, with group A performing better.

Conclusion: After a cesarean section, a local anaesthetic "Bupivacaine" injection to block the ilioinguinal nerves bilaterally is an efficient way to lessen postoperative discomfort and analgesic use.
