Kelly Preston to Have Silent Birth

Silent Birth Isn't Just For Scientologists Like Kelly Preston

I'm a talkative person, but when I'm in pain — I get quiet. There are only a handful of times when I've had nothing to say and three of those were when I was in active labor. Nothing, but bracing myself and staying mum, helped me get through the contractions — especially with my lil guy who was 10 lbs., 2 oz. and felt like a runaway freight train trying to exit.

Rumor has it that Scientologist Kelly Preston is planning on a silent labor with her impending bundle of joy. The religious birth plan avoids talking and music during the delivery, but natural human reactions to the process are allowed. Were you quiet during portions of your labor?

I was nowhere near silence. I screamed like a mad woman! I didn't feel like talking, though. Whenever someone asked me something, I got so irritated and angry at them. I didn't have any meds, either. But I don't pat myself on the back for that...

Like the previous poster said, screaming didn't do anything for me. Focusing on my body and what I needed to do was the best thing for me, and I remained really quiet throughout most of my labor. In between contractions I would talk with my boyfriend, the doctor, whoever, but once things started getting more intense I was very quiet.
