[tlhIngan Hol] {-bogh} {-bogh}'ed nouns and {-taHvIS}

As I stated, only a Head Noun functions simultaneously with two verbs at once.

What you really seem to want to say is:

*puqpu’ boghmoHlI’bogh be’pu’’e’ Qanbogh Qun’e’*

{be’pu’} is the head noun of {boghmoHlI’bogh} and {Qun} is the Head Noun of {Qanbogh}.

That’s why the expression you are trying to make is going up in flames. The real significant thing you are trying to express is not the duration of the birth, but the person doing the birthing. You want a larger sentence to contain a reference to the god who is protecting the women who are giving birth.

That’s nested Relative Clauses, and no, you can’t do that.
