A mother-of-three has shared how she was told by her doctor to ‘be quiet’ during delivery as she was making too much noise.
Yasmyn Switzer took to TikTok and shared the moment she was told to keep the volume down during contractions, explaining she thought the doctors were inconsiderate and rude.
Her post gained more than 230,000 views and received thousands of comments, many of which praised the mother for the way she handled the situation.
Yasmyn said that she made loud noises while giving birth to her third child and was told to keep quiet so the doctor ‘could hear.’
She said that she was still nice to the doctor even in labor as she wasn’t a confrontational person.
“My water broke, I thought it broke about 10 minutes before, so I was in the active pushing part for about 10 minutes,” the mother-of-three shared.
“The doctor came in right after my water broke then as I’m pushing I am not like screaming or really being that loud but kind of moaning along with when I’m pushing my daughter out and I’m listening to my body.”
In the middle of her contractions, she said the doctor told her: “I’m going to need you to be quiet so I can hear.”
Yasmyn said she thought it was rude, adding that she’d been with the same doctor through her pregnancies and that her daughter was delivered safely but the experience left her sour.
One TikTok user commented: “What is it that she needs to ‘hear’. This story makes me mad. I’m sorry this is your experience.”
Another wrote: “My doctor and nurses kept yelling they were like ‘LOUDER, get angry – it’ll help you push’. They were awesome. I’m sorry you went through this.”
