She also actually says that she cant feel anything and then in the next breath goes on to screech like a turkey getting its head hacked off... I just dont buy that it was necessary. Yes we all have different ways of coping i know this but I just dont buy hers.
Ha, well I went into transition in the hospital carpark (they'd sent me for a walk to get things going) and screamed my head off so loud they heard me in Maternity and sent a middie running out, she met me at the door with a wheelchair! I reckon I frightened the maternity patients, the general patients, the visitors, and half the surrounding populace. And guess what? I didn't give a rat's bum
Labour hurts like a mofo and if you can't scream then, when can you?!
I really felt for that poor woman. She seemed so scared.
I made noise with both of my vbacs, especially pushing out ds2 because apart from a bit of gas it was drug free. Plus I was scared because it was quite fast, one moment it was irregular, then with each contraction it got more and more painful with not much of a build up.

I thought they turned epis down/off when it comes time to push to ensure the mother can push effectively?
When I was in labour, I was deadly quiet (terrified) and the midwife kept encouraging me to make noise.
I eventually had an epidural, but could still feel contractions on one side but no feeling at all for pushing.
Anyway, I don't think I would have the stomach for this show, so haven't watched it.
I think some women are built to withstand the pain of childbirth and others aren't - a good friend of mine would go on a morphine drip for period pain if she could whereas I gave birth twice with absolutely no pain relief besides the shower/bath.
Each to their own really.
Perhaps they need a soundproof room for the screamers.
