Ok, this is just a random curiosity for me since I will probably have a c-section.
The Internet seems to be chock full of women who want people using soft voices and they want to listen to soft rock during birth. But then I also hear how vaginal birth is the toughest workout you'll ever go through. I guess I just don't see how those two mix. During a tough workout, I need to be yelled at firmly by a coach and, if I'm listening to music, I want loud rap or similar.
So why the discrepancy? If you want quiet music or people speaking softly ... why?
