Kelly Preston was on the Today show this morning, answering questions on her wonderful new son Benjamin, her birth, she came up with the name, and the subject of Scientology and "silent birth".
She told Today:
“Silent birth is basically just no words, as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you cry out, you know all of that, of course that’s normal,” Preston explained in response to the Today show host’s’ question of what exactly a "silent birth" means.
“But just bringing them in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible because L. Ron Hubbard found the single source of aberration of psychosomatic illnesses – stress, fears, worry, things like that – have to do with the reactive mind. And in that part of the mind is different words and commands that can come back and affect you later in life.”
“I’m blessed…my kids have always been amazing,” she told “Today.” “Very calm, very peaceful, happy…and I absolutely know that it’s very much because of that.”
