A BIOGRAPHY ON LEONARD ORR FOUNDER OF REBIRTHING
by Pola Churchill

REBIRTHING AND HEALING---CHAPTER THREE
Leonard contends that most babies who were delivered in rooms with harsh lights, yanked upside down and spanked, and whose umbilical chords were cut prematurely and separated from their mothers too quickly, undoubtedly made negative decisions about life and themselves, as they struggled to take their first breath. This dominant thought or negative thinking pattern he calls the personal law or "'personal lie' is the one core belief that we get addicted to, because we survived on this thought and it runs our life.
    Such decisions might include, "Life is a struggle." "The world is a hostile place." "I am not good enough." "I can't make it on my own."
    The purpose of rediscovering this subconscious pattern we formed at birth, is to breathe it out of our cellular memory, and replace the negative thought with a positive affirmation or "eternal law."
    Another pattern that Leonard feels is important to heal in this arena, is what he calls the Parental Disapproval Syndrome, where parents unconsciously betray their children's love and trust, by disapproving of them and withholding love to control them.

Meanwhile, the French obstetrician Frederick Le Boyer (author and filmmaker) was developing some new revolutionary techniques to deliver babies, that were safer and more gentle. 
    From intense observation of newborn reaction to birth, he devised various ways of making the transition from internal to external as smoothly as possible, with astonishing results! He would dim the lights, have little sound; he would place the child on the mother's stomach, and wait for the child to breathe on it's own, by not cutting the umbilical chord until it had stopped pulsating. The newborn is held delicately, and not jerked upside down as a welcome. The baby would then be placed in tub of warm water to relax and experience pleasure outside of the womb. 
    The results from this would be that "Le Boyer babies" hardly ever got sick or cried, and were much calmer and happier! He made a half-hour documentary film called Blissful Birth showing the evolution of the newborn baby, from a state of primal panic, to one of calmness and joy, and he produced a record to play to new babies to calm and soothe them.
    In 1976 Leonard rebirthed Frederick Le Boyer. Apparently he was easier than most to rebirth, and he had a great "breathing release", which as a result of releasing his birth trauma, enabled him to be more helpful to mothers delivering their babies, and with even more ease, especially if they had also been rebirthed in stages leading up to giving birth.
