Can screaming during pregnancy cause birth defects or deafness in the unborn child ?

Hello, I am 17 weeks pregnant and I was wondering if the mother screams and yells while pregnant, if it can cause the unborn baby to have birth defects or to become deaf?

No,birth defects are not caused by this,but your 17-20th week is a developmental phase for the fetus and its advisable to take proper rest and avoid stress at this time.
