Holmes urged to have 'silent birth'

It's been reported that actress Katie Holmes is being urged to have a 'silent birth' when she has Tom Cruise's baby. As RTE reports:

"When the 27-year-old actress is wheeled into the delivery room, she will be under instructions not to cry or scream out, no matter how painful her labour.

"The 'Dawson's Creek' star has reportedly agreed to convert from Catholicism her fiance's Church of Scientology, which insists on 'silent births' to avoid traumatising newborn babies.

"Scientologists also believe in giving youngsters lie-detector tests, asking them to spy on their classmates and face cutting themselves off from family members if they are non-believers.

"Holmes, who started dating Cruise in April, is thought to be three months pregnant."

I think this is ridiculous. Surely this kind of thing causes the mother to suffer even more and feel even greater agony and distress? In what way is that good for the baby?

Slugger O'Toole's peteb pointed me towards some interesting articles a few months back which dealt with the disturbing reality behind Scientology. I believe this was the site. Worth a read.
