Katie Holmes, officially a Scientologist, has options during birth
Tom also says that the media got it all wrong when it comes to the Scientology practice of a "silent birth" and that Katie can make all of the noise she wants to make during the delivery of their baby.
"It’s basically just respecting the mother, you know, and helping to be quiet. (But) not the mother," Tom says, " The mother makes as much noise … you know, she’s going through it. She does what she’s gotta do, OK?"
He also says that Katie has the option of using drugs, during delivery, contrary to popular belief (especially following Tom’s comments about Brooke Shield’s usage of anti-depressants to deal with post partum depression).
"We’re there, you know, with doctors. … Whatever the woman wants. … If she needs an epidural, she’s gonna get her epidural."
Also in the interview, Tom denies a rift between his future father-in-law, Martin Holmes, a devout Catholic, saying that the Holmes family is comfortable with Katie’s conversion to Scientology.
Furthermore, Tom says that his and Katie’s child will not have a Catholic baptism.
"I mean you can be Catholic and be a Scientologist. You can be Jewish and be a Scientologist. But we’re just Scientologists."
