That sounds terrible Chris. And this is what I meant by reading or overhearing
about breathing but with no experience at all into that. As a woman I should
have encouraged her to yell as much as she wanted if that would help her to
dilate better and cope her pain. I would have hold her hand very gentle but
very firm and talk to her with reassurance and kindnest. LIstening to her

wife, "do your relaxing breathing that you learned." despite the indubitable
power of conscious breathing, it was not a helpful thing to yell at that time.
