Tom Cruise and
Katie Holmes – Scientology ‘Silent Birth’ Does the Baby wear Ear Plugs?

Currently there is
a lot of talk about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes beliefs in Scientology
and having their baby delivered by ‘silent birth’. Somehow it sounds
ridiculous to be silent during the birthing process. Why not knock out
Katie and do a C-section delivery that could be very quite. That would
be silent as ever, but I guess that contradicts with other beliefs of
The reality of the
birthing process is that the baby is still inside how much can a baby
hear? During the process of delivery of the baby being pushed out the
baby is likely to be in shock as it is and I don’t think delivery would
be any more traumatic with a little noise.
Who says that you
have to yell during your delivery, but if it hurts that much the lady
delivering has to do whatever she needs to get through it. The
silliness of this is that you need ‘Scientology’ to have a commonsense
approach to a stressful situation. Delivering a baby is a stressful and
potentially painful arrangement for the mother to be. It makes common
sense to stay cool through the whole ordeal; however, to ask for extreme
quietness is likely to add stress for the mother delivering the baby.
If Katie is not
100 percent for the whole Scientology thing she is not going to be happy
in the birth process of being told what to do and how to do it. The
unhappiness she could potentially feel from the controlling partner
might cause more stress for her and also create anger towards Tom.
Katie sounds like
she is being bullied in a nice way, but it can wear thin after a while.
A safe delivery should be top on their list. How you take care of your
child after delivery should be more important to the couple than the
notion of noise during delivery. Having time to bond with the child
after being born is more important for a child to be content and calm
than just have quite time during delivery. The delivery should be
focused on preventing the child or mother from having any complications.
Tom Cruise and
Katie Holmes purchased ultrasound equipment during her pregnancy. While
this might be safe, it also might be dangerous to do excessive
ultrasounds on an unborn baby. The use of ultrasound has been
questioned for the safety of unborn fetuses by the FDA for unregulated
use. The FDA agrees that ultrasounds are safe is when they are being
used by professionals and on a limited basis. There is concern for the
excessive use of ultrasounds by untrained people.
matters during delivery is what the mother needs to cope with the
stressful situation. Sometimes a mom to be might want to watch a
favorite TV show while the labor pains mount. Others may want a quiet
room to sit in. It really is a personal preference that a mother should
dictate for her own well being during the delivery. Stress can be
minimized in a number of ways. The mother not the father should be the
one who dictates how to cope in the delivery room. The mom needs to be
ready to work hard at delivering the baby and if it takes coaching from
a nurse or doctor to encourage a safe delivery then it should be done.
The baby is more
than likely going to build the comfort zone and calmness with the mother
as the next few months of life occur. It would be silly to place a
‘silent birth’ over the mothers needs when it is her job to help in a
Tom Cruise should give Katie some
room to have a healthy delivery without all the extra pressure to have a
'silent delivery'. If Katie is for it that's great.
