I'll be 23 weeks on friday so i'm far from labor but I was watching a babys story ( I think thats what its called) and the lady on there was screaming her head off when she was pushing. Is all that really necissary? I mean...I know it hurts but do most women really scream like that? She even had the epi. Anyways...Just thought i'd ask.

I heard somewhere that screaming really loud actually just makes it harder to push, because your letting all your air out....Make sence to me!! I can't talk though untill I go through it myself!!!

I didn't scream with either of my babies, and I didn't get the epi. But while I was in labor, I did hear other women screaming. I guess you just can't help how you act, but I will say it was almost annoying. It kind of reminded me of how little kids act. I believe it can be controlled.

very true too. You should be holding your breath while you're pushing, b/c you need all the energy focused on that. But women also scream while they are just laboring. It is painful, but idk, I don't think I ever had the urge to scream. I moaned a lot, lol. Ooooooowwwwwwwwww....
