Now, I am no expert on Scientology, so I'm not entirely sure the extend to which this is true or how extreme it is in real life. But I can tell you that leaving a newborn without human contact for the first day of its life is far more damaging than screaming bloody murder during the birth. Katie apparently has her head screwed on at least a little straight, and claims that no way will she leave her child alone. I don't know who came up with that little "recommendation", but they obviously knew nothing about child development and attachment theory.
