*Push, Push SHHHH*

I am not sure that I've heard of a more assinine thing in my life and trust me - I have three children. I have heard some dumbass things.

Apparently, Tom gave Katie some of his koolaid and she is doing the scientology crap even with the birth of her child.

It is sort of hard to type this with a straight face, but she is planning on a "silent birth" out on some boat.

According to this news story, in scientology childbirth:
Maintain silence in the presence of birth to save both the sanity of the mother and child and safeguard the home to which they will go. The maintaining of silence does not mean a volley of 'Sh's', for those make stammerers.

Uh, ok.

I'm guessing there will be lots of drugs involved for her to be silent during childbirth. I've had three babies and never had to push one out of me (always had c-sections) but laboring during two of those births made me wish I was dead. I moaned, groaned, cried and cursed. I also did a lot of loud breathing, panting crap that didn't work. I believe it is simply designed to distract you from the pain by trying to make you concentrate on breathing correctly in the completely useless motivation of ridding your poor body of the agonizing pain of labor. But, I digress.

This little tidbit makes the religion even sadder for the poor kids born into it:
Scientologists are encouraged not to comfort or nurture young children because Hubbard believed a child is simply a small adult who can look forward to look after themselves from a young age.

This kid has no chance between psycho furniture-hopping dad, the stupid waif mom who doesn't seen anything wrong with these beliefs and now this. *shaking my head*

    I have yet to procreate, but if/when the day does come I am looking forward to the opportunity to yell and scream at the top of my lungs and Sweetie is prepared that will happen.

    when my sister had my neice my b-i-l swears she MADE UP new curse words.

    I hope she takes the baby and runs between now and the wedding... neither of them deserve his insanity... especially not the baby.

    Like I said.....this is the universe's way of getting back at Cruise for his remarks on postpartum depression.

    Just wait. Karma's a bitch. :)

    Well now since I gave birth 4 times 8lbs9oz,7lbs10oz,7lbs2ozand 8lbs6oz (the last was also breech) I did not have any drugs. I used breathing and talking. Having said that if I had known the last was going to be folded in half feet touching face and a fase 4 epsiotomy(sp) i would have had A LOT of drugs with that one and there would have been no more!!
