They don't allow anyone to talk to the baby or around it for 7 days after birth. WTF?
Why would you not want your baby to hear your voice? And if you are to remain silent during the birth, given the fact that baby can hear inside the womb, wouldn't that suggest that you shouldn't talk or be talked too once the fetus' ears have developed?
Someone explain this to me! (re: Kelly Travolta birth)

Well I am sure there are things we do that are considered odd in other cultures. Even going to a hospital to give birth is very odd and rather new in the evolutionary process of ideas on birth and labor. Yet we give it no thought and just do it. While it may not be for some people - I would never venture to call it crazy. Openness is a good thing. You don't have to understand it. But respecting others' religion and beliefs is important. If someone made fun of you for choosing to do epidurals, bright lights, and scaring the shit out your new born in general - you would resent that. Most likely a laundry list of the safety reasons why you choose a doctor, a sterile environment (not really all that sterile and how scary what you are really exposed to in a hospital), and the medical interventions you chose. I can respect that. But I equally respect the values and choices others make.
