Silent birth simply means a birth experience that is as quiet and calm as possible—the best thing for the well-being of the mother and baby.
Many childbirth experts agree.
Extensive research done by L. Ron Hubbard on the mind and spirit has shown that the circumstances of the birth experience—especially what is said in the vicinity of the baby while being born— can adversely affect the person throughout life.
Recent media reports have twisted the facts on silent birth and failed to give the complete picture. L. Ron Hubbard never wrote that parents should not speak to their child for seven days following birth. Nor does any Church of Scientology proscribe or dictate any such practice to its parishioners.
