Or how as soon as my dd was born my dh and I began sobbing and they told us to be quiet because we would scare my dd (who, btw was completely calm).

I know, not a very "Peaceful" way of looking at it but the theory is sound.
The Battle Yell helps focus the warrior, We are warriors in a different arena. that's all.
Of course, the other purpose of the battle yell is to unsettle your oponent. Dr is the oponent so mabe he doesn't like feeling "unsettled" *giggle*
