Penny Lancaster (Rod Stewart's fiancee) had a home water birth with her first child (his seventh). Rod got in the pool with her.

Are you sure about the "home" part of that? Got a link?

Sorry, she had a water birth in hospital. Still, pretty cool!

I saw this today in the NY Daily News. What do you want to bet she gives birth in the hospital?

TOMKAT AT SEA? As Katie Holmes' springtime due date looms, sources are whispering that she and fiancé Tom Cruise can't agree on where the delivery should take place. According to Star magazine, Holmes wants to give birth in a hospital, but Cruise wants their child born at his Beverly Hills mansion. "He's concerned that at a hospital someone might sneak into Katie's room and take pictures," a source claims. Meanwhile, Scientology adversary Rick Ross says the birth may take place aboard a Scientology-owned cruise ship or at Gold Base, a heavily guarded 500-acre Scientology compound in Hemet, Calif., between L.A. and Palm Springs.

Wasn't Tom Cruise also the one who bought an Ultrasound machine? :
I can understand the desire for privacy, but he's really starting to sound a bit Michael Jackson-esque

Debi Mazar had a homebirth with her first. It looks like it didn't go well, so it's unclear if she had one with her second.

thats where I live, that place scares me to even drive by. i would not want to have my baby there! some 21 year old girl died in the basement part of that place by being electricuted on accident. It doesnt sound all that homey or even safe for that matter. Granted I am sure good ole Tom could get the best accomadations but still.....oh and in case of transfer, the hospital here SUCKS.

i read that angelina wants a natural birth but i dont know about homebirth.
post #148 of 495
I doubt Tom's reasoning has anything to do with a natural, home environment for the birth. I recently read something written by a former Scientologist about their birth methods, which sound freaky to me. They separate mom from the baby for the first day of life and allow only very limited contact for the first several days. The baby is left alone in a crib for most of the first day and isn't touch unless absolutely necessary. This is called, "Processing the New Mother" or something like that. Too weird for me! This method seems incompatible with breastfeeding and I wonder about that part of it. It seems totally unnatural at a time when moms and babies should have constant contact for them to be separated!

Read those articles. They send chills down my spine. I really don't like Scientology parenting styles! :

I think there's a lot of misinformation (or no longer practiced information) about scientology. FI, I am pretty sure T/K aren't planning to do that separation stuff, and DO plan to breastfeed.

This is sick. It's pretty much the same stuff I've read and heard before about this group. The newborn separation and not comforting small children is totally unnatural, IMO. Also, not really outdated. Many of these stories took place in 2000 and after. They are basically the same as the stories from the fifties and sixties. Too sad.
post #152 of 495
Found this link through the page linked by Kristi. The cult is indeed anti breastfeeding. Here's the link:

http://members.chello.nl/mgormez/childabuse/barley.html

The group still follows the writings of L Ron Hubbard, which are 50-60 years old, or more. This includes using a gross "formula" rather than mom's milk or infant formula. The recipe is on the page. They seem the very opposite of AP.

That is frightening and disgusting. Ick.

This is too funny! CBS news radio in Los Angeles just called me. They want to do a short interview (5 minutes) with me on Monday (April 10th) about Tom and Katie's upcoming Scientology birth! Apparently they want my opinion. Thanks to this thread, I know something about what Scientology advocates. They also want me to talk about unassisted childbirth. I'll be on around 8:45 Pacific time on http://www.knx1070.com/ . I believe you should be able to listen to it live on the internet but you need to register first. Registration is free and takes less than a minute. Go to the site and click on "listen live."

Should be fun!

Wow! Very cool. Does that make YOU a celebrity homebirther now?

And we can say we knew you when...
post #156 of 495
I haven't quite achieved celebrity status (yet!) but at least I'm getting another 15 minutes of fame (well, actually 5 minutes!). I look forward to the day when I can be the one jumping up and down on Oprah's couch! But for now a radio interview will do.

I forgot to mention, that it's 8:45 in the morning on Monday.

And according to the above link, Debi Mazar's baby "tipped the scales at 8 pounds, 1 ounce"!

Not a celebrity, but a celebrity's child: Jane Fonda's daughter gave birth at home. Jane wrote about it,

Quote:
I realized sadly how I, like many women, had relinquished to doctors my ownership of this ultimate metamorphic experience. This had been true when I gave birth to Vanessa, but now I was watching her do it right—not in the sense that everyone must have a home birth, but “right” in being intentional, fully in charge, informed.

Do celebrities born at home count? Juliette Lewis was an unassisted home birth! http://www.solace.mh.se/~alpha/jlwp/articles/jlwp17.htm
