RE: I need a word...

I grunt and make guttural groans when I push - but oh, I've never delivered a baby doing that. (As someone else has said, if you scream, the force is coming out the wrong end.)

I know where you;'re coming from, David.

Screaming implies a high pitched noise, whilst in labour it's more a guttural moan, more animal like than human.

See, it's the blokes who think it's a scream (so to speak) and the people who've done it who reckon it's a grunt of effort. Trust us. (In this, at least!)

I knew I'd catch someone in a generalisation like that. Sincere apologies if I seemed to cast nasturtiums on your manhood!
