Kelly Preston has to stay silent when giving birth to her baby son.
Preston and husband John Travolta have chosen to obey the rules of the Church of Scientology and have a silent birth.
This means “no music, no talking and no screaming will be allowed during the pains of labor. Also, their new son cannot be prodded for medical tests or spoken to for the first seven days of his life. You don’t want to do anything that will haunt them for the rest of their lives,” a source close the family explains.
Preston revealed in an interview years ago that they’d hoped to have a silent birth with their daughter Elle Bleu, but that didn’t work. She admitted that she screamed, “I want an epidural!” after being in labor for 13 hours when Elle was born. This time, she hopes things go more smoothly.
Am I missing something, or is a silent delivery almost like an oxymoron? Really?
