Is it possible to remember being born?

  • Possibly, but most people don’t know they’re born.Fiona Sampson, London
  • Ray Bradbury (the sci-fi author) claimed he could remember every detail of being born, from his head being crushed to suddenly being surrounded by bright lights.Liz Piggott
  • The hippocampus is a brain structure thought to be crucially involved in the formation of memory for facts and events. At birth and in early childhood this structure is not fully grown, and so memory of birth is unlikely. What’s interesting is that the brain structure for emotional memory, the amygdala, is mature in infancy – the outcome of these two facts being that an emotionally significant event during infancy may affect the way a child behaves later in life despite them not being able to remember the actual event.David Sant, Oxford
  • Our first child spooked us when he was small, by telling us the first thing he remembered was a white window opening and a man reaching for him. He was born by Caesarian, unknown to him at the time.Mike Whittaker, Peplow
  • When my daughter was 3 1/2 I asked her if she liked being in my womb. She said… Yes, at first she could move around but then she couldn’t and she was ready to come out. I then asked her if she could remember being born. She said yes, and she descibed the room and the events that took place, (she was born at home, We moved when she was 2 yrs) The next year I asked her again and she had no memory of it and did not remember telling me the story. I am glad I wrote it down earlier. After our move she would remember smells from the old house when she came upon something, Today smells will still trigger old home memories. I call it her memory #1 and memory #2, I think those early years are so full of stuggles of growing and dependence we want to forget it. Who wants to remember wet diapers?!Joyce, Calif USA
  • Whilst stuggling to get my daughter, aged about 2, into a tight polo necked jumper, she suddenly said “it’s like being borned”.jane, Edinburgh UK
  • After reading some of these answers, I asked my son Alfie aged 3 if he could remember being inside mummy’s tummy. He sadi ‘Yeah’, so I asked him what it was like. He said ‘soft’ and ‘dark’ and then when asked what it looked like he said ‘shiny’ (odd answer? Not if you’ve ever seen a placenta). I asked him if he could remember coming out and he said ‘yes, it hurt me.’ Can’t wait until my little girl has the vocabulary to tell me what she thought!Jo Walker, Canterbury UK
  • would we really want to remember?SJ, Glasgow Scotland
  • Surely memory is linked to speech. If we have the ability to put something into words then we have the ability to store it and recall it. Isn’t it likely that memory starts when language (that is understanding basic language, not necessarily speaking) is learned, making recollection of birth unlikely?VC, Kent, UK
  • It gave me great comfort reading this, as nobody wants to believe me when I tell them I remember events that took place early in my life (moving house at 11 months, my first birthday, my mother being pregnant and giving birth to my brother when I was 20 months old). I am very grateful to my parents, who spoke to me like I was “a real person” (which I obviously was) since I was a new-born. This gave me a language and a vocabulary before I could speak, and must have improved my ability to remember.Klara S., Bergen Norway
  • I remember being born. I tried for a moment to tell the people who were around me that WE FORGET! This is because the moment I was born, I watched the memory of where I had been before birth leave me.Mark,
  • I had a memory for a long time of being held high in a room, hearing a rush of noise while peering though a hand over my face – I figured this to be my birth by Caesarian almost 2 months premature. I remember being breastfed, being fed in the highchair, driving in the car, learning to walk … I especially remember the frustration of knowing I wanted to get somewhere, pulling myself up on furniture and the crash of falling down on wet nappies. My mother denies I could because I was nine months old. I remember my first birthday – not the fact it was my first birthday, I was able to describe a present I had in front of me and my mother scoffed that I couldn’t have remembered it as it was my first birthday. But I sure remember the carpet and vinyl tiles removed from the house before I was one – I spent a lot of time on those. I definitely remember being pre-verbal – of trying to tell my mother I wanted a drink but she couldn’t understand. Then there were two stays in hospital before the age of 17 months, it was more about the colours and shapes of things that I didn’t know what they were then, but because I can still see them all so visibly now I can name the experience … Heaps more I could tell you … But this thing might run out of spac…Paula, New Zealand
  • I can’t remember being born but I can remember the first time I was given semi-solid food after nothing but warm milk (bottle fed, by the way) – it felt so strange that it didn’t just slip down easily, and I had to make an effort to swallow. I can remember slewing sideways in my highchair in reaction. I was less than a year old, for sure. I can also remember the awful sensation of the tight ‘swaddling’ clothes an old woman (grandmother?) tried to wrap me in so I couldn’t kick and wriggle. I’ve hated tight clothes or tucked-in bed-linen ever since. I can also remember breaking a window at 18 months old. I’m always amazed that people can’t remember before the age of 3. And no, these memories aren’t linked to words / language – I remember sensations and images.C Laugesen, Leyland UK
