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.
