If we have the ability to remember our past lives, and if we are able to see the future, then being able to access memories of being in our mummy’s tummy shouldn’t come as a surprise. Personally, having had a baby recently myself, I find the following information much more intriguing than knowing the future or our past lives. It gives me butterflies in my tummy thinking that my little boy may still have these memories and he might be interested in expressing himself when he is able to. After reading so much about it and deciding that believing in it will add a touch of magic to life, I will certainly encourage it, should he show even the slightest sign of having any prenatal memories.
Below are just a couple of accounts (out of hundreds) of children talking about their own personal experiences that they remember about being in their mummy’s tummy. These accounts are both quite different, unique and original, each one is fascinating and each one is truly special:
“My son would go get my flannel robe ‘with pink roses’ out of my closet and I would find him cuddled up with it.
I had been very large while pregnant and didn’t wear it after my pregnancy because it was too big for me. I asked him why he needed that robe. He said it was always his favorite softy, and made him feel good. Like when I used to wear it when he was in my tummy. Before he was 2 he could draw the flowers! I did have a hard pregnancy and that was the main thing I wore for the last several months before he was born! But he had never known….” – Carolyn Reichert Gray
“When my son was 2-3, he said ‘your Mummy is nice, she is’. I responded ‘yes, she was nice’ (my Mum had died when I was 6 weeks pregnant). My son then said ‘your mummy used to cuddle me, when I was in your tummy’. I said ‘no, she didn’t. My Mummy died when I was 6 weeks pregnant. You had only been growing for 6 weeks and babies need to grow for 40 weeks, before they are born, before they come out of their Mummies tummies’. My son was adamant ‘but she DID cuddle me, she DID! You were sad, and cried a lot when I was in your tummy, but it’s ok, because your Mummy looked after me, she cuddled me’. He then smiled, as if he was remembering the experience, as if he was looking at her face. It was strange, as I had never mentioned my mother to him, or showed him any photographs.” – Se L Ma
There have been hundreds of documented accounts of children having some kind of memory of being in their mother’s womb. There are billions of people in this world, and after spending 9 months (or sometimes longer), in your mother’s womb, in one place, tasting, hearing, feeling, seeing all for the very first time, I have no doubt that there are still thousands upon thousands of amazing, unrecorded memories from children all around the world. If you are interested in this beautiful phenomenon like I am, then there is a book out there that has gotten pretty good reviews. Cosmic Cradle: Souls Waiting in the Wings for Birth is the name and I have read that it offers more than 200 inspiring stories on the baby’s passage from ‘heavenly worlds’ into the mother’s womb. Might be quite an interesting read! If anyone has read this book it would wonderful to hear your thoughts about it in the comment section!
Just to take this article a little further; in my research about memories in the womb, I naturally stumbled upon information about the experiences of souls residing in the ‘heavens’ and their decisions to take on the task of occupying a human body and live a life on Earth. I believe the book mentioned earlier covers this topic as well. The following account from a mother who overhears a private conversation between her two children sums this up perfectly:
“When my son and daughter were 3 and 4, they had a conversation that surprised me. My daughter who was 3, asked my son if he remembered when they were in heaven together. He said yes he remembered. She then asked if he also remembered telling her that he would be born first, so he can be her big brother and take care of her while down here. They had no idea we were listening. They are only 10 months and 1 week apart. Right now they are both 13, my son will be 14 on March 29th, to this day they are still very close and practically never fight.” – Kim Solorio Alderete
There is a woman, Lisbeth Eyrich-Fischer, who has found her ability to communicate with souls or ‘spirit babies’ as she calls them, before they find their parents, while they are in the womb, and even still-born babies and miscarried babies sometimes have things to say! If you are interested, you can find her on Facebook here or visit her website.
Thank you for reading and we welcome anyone who has any memories or have children who have spoken about their memories to please tell us about them! We find this so beautiful and fascinating and hearing about your stories excite us!
