Katie (Holmes)'s code of silence for baby's birth

TOM Cruise's partner, Katie Holmes, will be silent while delivering their child, obeying the strict rules of Scientology.

The actor will have to be quiet because followers of the religion believe the baby can be traumatised by hearing its mother's screams or groans.
Holmes, 26, will also have to refuse painkillers and can expect few words of comfort because those at the birth are also expected to be quiet. But she can turn to large "instructional" boards delivered by friends.

One reads: "Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understandable."

Any nerves before the birth, which is expected in the next few days, were well hidden by a smiling Miss Holmes as she took an evening stroll outside the Beverly Hills mansion of her 43-year-old fiance.

She had spent the day at the Scientology centre in Hollywood with her mother Kathleen and Cruise's mother Mary Lee for her baby shower.

You know in the rarity that I happen to have an 8 pound fetus coming out of my birth canal, I would like to scream.
I would probably enjoy some drugs as well.
A board that read "Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understanding" wouldn't do it for me.
Breaking a board that said "Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understanding" would.
Even if the baby hears me, later in life I will tell the kid, I had your 8 pound ass coming out of me, it wasn't the painless of experiences.
This is why I feel Scientology (the church of celebrities) is a bunch of bullshyt.

Well, so the mother will be traumatised. And she won't get any drugs against postnatal depression either. Just some vitamins and a babbling husband telling her how to feel.

This makes me so angry.

Well, the fact that Tom Cruise belongs to a sect who has such crazy rules, proves that he is a lunatic.

This whole relationship and the pregnancy are strange. He's twice in a long term relationship but unable to make his wife pregnant. And now all of a sudden it worked?

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

fucked up.
is the baby allowed to scream when it's born?
was katie holmes brainwashed or something? why would a sane, young, healthy woman say yes to such a procedure?

I wondered this. Maybe he'd make her watch all his films...

Seriously, this is just crazy! I feel sorry for Katie.
