Santa Barbara, California - As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are preparing to soon become parents for the second time, new theories have emerged that the couple is thinking about an alternative practice for delivering their baby.

There is speculation that Meghan Markle would like to give birth using a practice similar to one used in the Church of Scientology.

Two-year-old Archie will soon be an older brother when his 39-year-old mom gives birth to her second child.

Yet, rumors have surfaced that believe Meghan and Harry's first daughter will be born according to a very specific ritual.

New Idea reported that Meghan's birth is already planned to a tee – and its shocking nature has taken fans by surprise.

The tabloid magazine detailed Meghan's alleged desire to deliver her baby at home, rather than at the hospital, with only the couple's midwife and Harry present.

So far, it sounded like a typical at-home delivery.

But further details explained that everyone must remain quiet the whole time – practicing a silent birth.

The ritual is reminiscent of a Scientology birthing custom. According to the observance, the expectant mother and all present are required to remain calm and quiet throughout labor. The practice is allegedly widespread among Scientologists.

"Meghan and Harry feel they’ve been through enough in their own lives and are anxious to start over with their baby girl, and that means giving her the most peaceful entrance possible into the world," explained a source.

Some churchgoers believe that any words spoken are recorded in the brain of the child as it is born, and could have an abnormal effect on the baby.

Are Scientolgists recruiting the royal couple?

Among other celebrity followers of the ideology, Katie Holmes is said to have given birth to her daughter Suri Cruise using the silent method.

Holmes' ex-husband Tom Cruise is one of Hollywood's most well-known followers of Scientology. The two were married from 2006 to 2012, when Holmes allegedly fled the relationship with her daughter to escape the church.

There is no evidence to suggest the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are part of the Scientology movement, however an insider claimed that members of the church had pursued Meghan and Harry.

Could there be truth to the magazine's report?

An important point has given rise to serious doubts: It seems extremely unlikely that Harry and Meghan will not seek medical help in a hospital for the birth, especially when their first child was born at Portland Hospital in London. At the time, there were similar unfounded reports that the couple had initially planned a home birth for Archie as well.

Baby number two's summer arrival will soon reveal if the couple will again follow the same path.
