Scientology

My sister sent me this


Tom and Katie are likely to follow the Church of Scientology's "silent birth" guidelines during delivery, which means no music and no talking during the birth, which also means no screaming during the pains of labor.

The doctrine also states that newborns cannot be poked or prodded for medical tests or even spoken to for the first seven days of their lives, believing that babies go through so much pain during the birth, they shouldn't have to experience any further discomfort or sensory experience that could return later in life to haunt them.


That sounds really messed up to me .

I saw that story on Access Hollywood the other night...which they followed with Kelly Preston admitted that she tried that approach with an at home birth but after 30 hours of labor, she screamed to John Travolta "GET ME OUT OF HERE I WANT AN EPIDURAL!"
Tee hee.
