Women, for Screaming during Labour you pay $5

For screaming during labour while giving birth, a hospital in Zimbabwe, charged the women $5. Zimbabwe is one of the corrupt countries in the world where nearly 95% of the population is unemployed, yet they charge their women $5 for screaming during childbearing.
The shocking discovery was made by a U.S. group that campaigns against corruption, as it released its annual Global Corruption Barometer.

At the hospital in Zimbabwe, one of the poorest countries in the world, the fine was said to be for 'raising a false alarm', according to Transparency International. Women who were unable to pay the fine were allegedly kept in the hospital until their families could pay. 

Many mothers already avoid hospital deliveries in the African nation because of the $50 cost, which is about the third of the average $150 income.

But abeg if you have ever given birth or know someone who has gone through the pains of childbearing, is it possible to go through labour without screaming?
