Crazy TomKat

I cannot believe anyone who has a sane mind can think that this is even close to normal.

We all heard a few months ago that Katie Holmes, who is expecting Tom Cruise's child any minute now, is supposed to give birth in complete silence. According to Scientology beliefs, the noises the mother and those around her make during childbirth can be a source of trauma for the newborn child, which is why a silent birth is necessary.

Well, now, it seems that Katie cannot even talk to her baby for seven days after the childbirth. Apparently newborns must not hear their mother speak so that they do not associate her voice with the trauma of birth.

My question is, how come hearing the father's voice has no impact on the baby's trauma level?

Oh, and apparently, after the birth, the baby is supposed to be wrapped somewhat tightly in a warm blanket, and then left alone for a day or so.

And, (oh yes...there's more!) no medical examinations must take place within the first week of the baby's life.

They can't be serious, can they?

Katie, darling, a word of advice. For your sake, and for the sake of that unborn child, RUN while you still can. Don't you see that you're getting sucked into a cult? Hasn't any of this raised any red flags in that brain of yours? Has Tom hypnotized you or something, because I really don't see how someone can go from being a seemingly normal person to accepting such crap.

I often find it difficult to believe what is said in all the gossip columns, even though i love juicy hollywood gossip, because I always think "they're people too", its just gossip to sell the magazine!

In this case, the impression I get is that he started dating her because he can do whatever he wants with her. That's the impression the tabloids give out. I mean imagine your 25, and that you start dating Tom Cruise, wow, I couldn't believe it myself! Then you get sucked in. If your are not such a strong person, it could be very difficult to get out of. Kind of like an abused wife y'know? Plus she's pregnant (but that's her fault). Imagine making the biggest mistake of your life because you are star struck and now you're stuck!

I still wonder if they're as crazy/jelly spined as depicted in the tabloids. Hmmm.

Father's voice wont traumatize him cuz they figure he will get traumatized once he learns his father is Tom Cruise anyways, do why the effort.

Lol..Bob, that's funny :)

Chazoo, I agree with what you're saying. What I really find disgusting in all of this is that he is using her.

She is starstruck and cannot believe she is dating Tom Cruise, and he is using his relationship with a young, impressionable 25-year old to generate publicity, spread the word about Scientology, and further his career...

NZM, I am surprised Nicole even lasted this long with him....but, to her defense, I have feeling that he only started going cuckoo recently. He seemed like a sane, normal person pre-Katie.

Ugh they are both grossing me out. I love gossip and all, but from the start of their 'relationship', I've been really grossed out by their extremely awkward body language and way too public displays of affection.

I wonder when the hell she is gonna pop. At the rate they're going, the Brangelina spawn will pop before the TomKat scientology baby ever will.

There have been so many rumours about it being a fake pregnancy, and although it's a horrible thing to think, I really thought that they might just end this fake pregnancy with a miscarriage or something.

Ok, I read too many gossip blogs. But really, I thought that right from the start. It's just too weird.

Also, does he not realise how much he is embarassing his kids with his crazy antics? Poor kids. Poor Katie. Poor Scientology-baby.

And one last thing, although I can kind of understand the whole scientology thing about a 'silent' birth so as to not traumatise the baby (ie, not too much screaming and no swearing), I think the tabloids are taking it to an extreme. I am sure Tom is not expecting Katie to remain tight-lipped throughout something he could never ever imagine going through.

I guess the scientologists just preach that to make birthing a more 'pleasurable' and mellow experience. I know I get completely freaked out when I see women screaming their heads off during child-birth, so why traumatise a nice and cozy baby.

Yes the tabloids are taking it to an extreme, because, according to the Scientology website, a silent birth is as follows:

Having a quiet, gentle birth is all about providing the best possible environment for the birthing mother and her new baby.

It is labor and delivery done in a calm and loving environment and with no-spoken words by everyone attending as much as possible. Chatty doctors and nurses, shouts to “PUSH, PUSH” and loud or laughing remarks to “encourage” are the types of things that are meant to be avoided.

It is words that are the culprit. Outside of not speaking, the objective is generally to have as peaceful and relaxing an environment as possible for the mother and child. It is doubtful that any woman could give birth without making any noise at all.

Mothers naturally want to give their baby the best possible start in life and thus keep the birth as quiet as possible.

Sounds logical....but then the whole no talking to the baby for a week, and leaving the baby alone for 2 days and no medical attention for the baby....well, that's freaky!
