The continuing adventures of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have an edutational aspect vis a vis Dianetics and Scientology. Now Holmes is reported to be pregnant we learn of L. Ron Hubbard's injunctions regarding childbirth and neonatal care.
The doctrine also states that newborns cannot be poked or prodded for medical tests or even spoken to for the first seven days of their lives, believing that babies go through so much pain during the birth, they shouldn't have to experience any further discomfort or sensory experience that could return later in life to haunt them.
