If you're doing multiple reps, yes you should breathe between reps for the most part.
But if you're doing one rep? No. You will not have maximal intra-abdominal pressure for that one rep if you're breathing in and out.
If you want to compare it to a woman giving birth, she's doing multiple pushes, but each push (rep) she has her breathe held.
