Prenatal Memory Of A Child

Feb 28, 2008
Have you ever wondered what exactly is up with prenatal memory? The information about prenatal memory and unborn baby presented here will do one of two things: either it will reinforce what you know about prenatal memory, unborn baby or it will teach you something new. Both are good outcomes.

When I studied Right Brain Training and started reading books written by Dr. Makoto Shichida on prenatal memory, I was quite surprised to find there is evidence to suggest that children do have prenatal memory. It was astonishing to know that 3 to 5 years old children could relate this prenatal experience in such a way that made it difficult not to accept it was something from within. The remarkable aspect of this description was the situation described was so close to that in the womb that it would be impossible for them to have learnt it from anywhere else.

When I asked my first son, who is 5 years old, to share with me his prenatal memories, he drew the picture below. He related to me what he saw when he was in my womb and shared with me his experience in such detail that it astonished me. He described the drawing and explained what it was like when he was surrounded by a water-bag.

The following is a transcription of the conversation I had with him:

1.What did you feel like?
It was relaxing and happy. I drew a smiling face for me.

2.What did you see?
I saw water and the food you have eaten - chicken, rice, potato, vegetable, mushroom and carrots. (These were the food that I loved to eat during my pregnancy).

3.What did you hear?
I heard gulp sound. (I had a lot of wind during my pregnancy). I heard the song "Little Bo Bo" that was sung by grandma. I love this song. I could sing this song now.

4.What did it smell like?
It smelt like chicken.(Chicken was my favourite dish at that time)

5.What was the colour inside my womb?
It was grey and purple.

6.What was the colour of water?
It was transparent.

7.What did you want to tell mother then?
I want to tell my mother "I love you."

The prenatal memory is a very significant and first memory of a child. I would recommend that you talk to your older children to ask them to share with you their prenatal experience when they are ready. It helps to understand and build a deep bond with your children. You may encourage them to share whatever aspect of prenatal memory. You may give an encouraging listening ear to your children.
