I roared through pushes in my homebirth--we closed the windows so the neighbors wouldn't hear. And I was hoarse afterward. But it was what my body told me to do--I don't think I could have stopped if I'd tried.

During transition I started saying "OHHHHHHHHH!" and it just felt better. It wan't a scream, just felt nice to do. During pushing I screamed from effort, but I was at a hospital so they told me to stop. During the ring of fire I screamed that it burns and I wasn't going to push anymore. And I didn't, my body did.
