Video: Kelly Preston on the Today Show Answers Questions on Silent Birth

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:

image “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.”

    Love that Kelly Preston is speaking out about silent births.
    My daughter, Maebelle Jean, was born on December 14th, 2010 (our first child). We also had a silent birth and it was amazingly easy. I really expected it to be next to impossible to remain silent without the use of pain meds or an epidural but it wasn’t. In fact it was a beautiful experience!
    My doctor and the hospital staff we’re not only very accommodating but because of the recent press about celebrity Scientologists having silent births they we’re very excited to be able to take part in one.
    Like Kelly mentioned about her children, our daughter is so calm and peaceful too. I completely contribute it to Dianetics and Scientology. The pregnancy assists I had, preventative Dianetics, silent birth, and assists she has had already have helped us bring a ‘perfect’ baby into this world. We could not be happier and so thankful to LRH!
