Dianetics is a terrific book. I recommend it without reservations.
Come in to the New York Church of Scientology for a Dianetics seminar.

ABC.com has a little piece of John Travolta and Kelly Preston today where Kelly is credited with downplaying media hype on Scientology practices relating to childbirth.
There's a good web site which gives factual data on the subject, called Silent Birth
Kelly also has a terrific interview this week on the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre web site
Recommended link: Read about the grand opening of my church and the speech by David Miscavige memorializing the occasion.

Here's an excerpt:
| Scientology Silent Birth: 'It's A Natural Thing' |
The Rev. John Carmichael of the Church of Scientology explains why his religion frowns on talking during labor and delivery.
|Interview by Alice Chasan|
|Since actor Tom Cruise, a Scientologist, announced that he and actress Katie Holmes would follow the Scientology practice of "silent birth" when their baby was born, there has been widespread speculation about what's behind this idea and what it involves. On April 18, 2006--the day Cruise and Holmes' baby, Suri, was born--the Rev. John Carmichael, president of the Church of Scientology in New York, spoke with Beliefnet senior editor Alice Chasan to explain Scientology's views on childbirth, the parent-child relationship, and child development|

For more information about Scientology I recommend reading the speech by Mr. David Miscavige called "This is Scientology."

Here's what he had to say about New York and the Scientology church we have here:
For when you consider New York is the hub of everything from American Publishing, to fashion, the nation's financial capital and epicenter of global trends, not to mention the international center for entertainment and media. And all in addition to the most diverse culture on earth, which sets the trends across every generation and spectrum of life.
Well, what more need be said? New York is the greatest city on earth.Yet even that doesn't say it all. Rather, this one is special for another reason. Because, what we are bringing to New York Scientologists today, with this new church, is what you inspired across the rest of the world three years ago. In fact, it can be said in a single phrase that now drives a global movement bringing hope and salvation to millions, world over.
For in the darkest of times and worst of places, you stood tall amongst it all, as a shining beacon of light, proclaiming in action that: SOMETHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT.
