Intrafetal memory sounds interesting, but it’s not unreliable at all. Big data shows that there are traces to follow

Intrafetal memory sounds interesting, but it is not unreliable. Big data shows that there are traces to follow.

Do children have memories of life in the mother’s womb? This is a topic that moms are very curious about, and people are also quite controversial about it. Some mothers think that the child does have intra-fetal memory, because sometimes the child will tell about the situation in the mother’s belly in a very casual situation, for example, swimming in the mother’s belly, playing with a rope, etc. Wait. However, there are also treasure mothers who think this is impossible. After all, the baby in the womb is not fully developed, and it is obviously weird to have the memory at that time. 

Intrafetal memory is not Just kidding, big data proves that the effect is obvious. Appropriate prenatal education methods are very important.

The research on intrafetal memory has always been quite controversial. Prior to this, a Japanese obstetrician had conducted more than ten years of investigation and research on this, and selected more than 4,000 pairs of mothers and children to conduct investigations on intra-fetal memory. In the end, he found that among so many survey subjects, most of the babies still retain intra-fetal memories. He even suggested that one out of every three babies could tell his memory in the mother’s womb. 

However, this kind of research conclusion also makes it difficult for some mothers to believe, because when they ask their children about their children’s intrafetal memory, not all children can express them clearly. Such a high probability seems a little unconvincing. 

The doctor explained that it is best to ask the child’s intrafetal memory within three years of age. If the child is over three years old, then they are likely to forget this magical memory. 

And it’s best for parents to ask questions when the child is relatively relaxed, so that the child will not feel pressure and can express better. 

In fact, in addition to the research conducted by Japanese physicians on intra-fetal memory, American neuroscientist John Medina also conducted research on this. He believes that the fetus can perceive sounds in the second half of pregnancy. It is stimulating, and the fetus will record this part of the memory into the subconscious mind. At an appropriate time, this information is likely to be remembered again. 

The research on intra-fetal memory is very interesting, which also makes mothers more curious about whether their children have intra-fetal memory. However, it has to be said that no matter how much or less the child retains the intra-fetal memory, this proves that the fetus can accept external environmental stimuli when it is in the belly of the pregnant mother, which indirectly proves the value of prenatal education. 

What are the prenatal education How important is it? 

1. Contribute to the development of babies’ sensitivity to sounds

Researches have shown that babies who have undergone prenatal education are more sensitive to sounds after birth, which also makes babies more sensitive to sounds. The perception of rhythm is clearer. With the support of prenatal education, it will be easier for parents to guide their children in music learning. 

2. Help babies learn pronunciation earlier

Prenatal education creates a richer language environment for the fetus, which makes it easier for babies to learn pronunciation. With the language pronunciation foundation of prenatal education, babies will be more familiar with the language environment after birth. Earlier, some netizens shared that a child with autism was very excited when hearing English. This was due to the experience that his mother worked in a foreign company during her pregnancy and only spoke English at work. 

3. Contribute to the intellectual development of the fetus

Prenatal education gives the fetus more abundant stimulation, which allows the fetal brain nerve cells to rapidly proliferate, and at the same time, the fetus’s nervous system development also obtains powerful stimulation . Obviously, prenatal education has a very beneficial effect on the intellectual development of the fetus. 

How do parents properly conduct prenatal education to the fetus? 

1. Play relatively soft music

After the fetus has a certain hearing ability, pregnant mothers can try to play some relatively soft prenatal music. The gentle concert brings more comfortable environmental stimulation and auditory experience to the fetus. This can not only soothe the fetus’s emotions, but also stimulate the fetus’s brain development. 

2. Talk to the fetus more

Usually pregnant mothers can chat with the fetus more to enrich the language environment of the fetus. At the same time, prospective fathers can also join in to enrich the language environment stimulation received by the fetus. Relatively speaking, the voices of prospective fathers are lower and louder, which is completely different from that of pregnant mothers. Because the fetus is familiar with the voices of the fathers-to-be, it is easier for them to show their intimacy with the fathers after they are born. 

3. Properly carry out prenatal education exercises

Prenatal education can not only be guided by voice, but pregnant mothers can also perform appropriate exercises, for example, during pregnancy. Moms can try yoga or swimming. When the pregnant mother is exercising, the fetus can also clearly perceive it. However, in the control of the amount of exercise, pregnant mothers should be different from person to person, don’t be too reluctant. 

I have to say that prenatal education during pregnancy is still very good for the growth and development of the fetus. Even if the children have no intra-fetal memory, it is still obviously helpful for their intellectual development. During the long and boring pregnancy, pregnant mothers may wish to put prenatal education on the agenda, which not only enriches the lives of pregnant mothers, but also benefits the fetus. What does the family think about the memory in the fetus? Knowing that these 100,000 praises later the children’s performance betrayed the parents’ original lies.

“If you score 90 or more in the test this time, I will take you to the playground.

“You must be obedient at home, and wait until Dad comes back to bring you sweets.”

“After you finish your homework, I will take you to play at night.”


Are these conversations familiar? I am afraid that the parents are not familiar with it anymore, because this is a common method used by parents to coax a baby. After the parents have said these words, have they really fulfilled it? 

How many parents didn’t really realize it in the end, and sometimes they are fortunate that their children forgot about it. As everyone knows, their children are always impressed with their parents’ promises. 

Zhihu has a one hundred thousand high praise answer, which is basically an answer to the effect of parents’ frequent lying on their children. One netizen reached out, “All kinds of future behaviors of children will betray the lies of their parents.”

It is just a simple sentence, but it has received so many likes. It can be seen that everyone is right. Recognition of this sentence. 


I was playing at my cousin’s house a few days ago and saw my nephew standing on a chair by the window, looking downstairs. I asked my sister-in-law how dare he stand on the chair today and what is he looking at? 

Be aware that the little nephew has a fear of heights. Other 5-year-old children may not be afraid to stand at the window and look down, but the little nephew is particularly afraid of heights. Usually the window is open and someone wants to hold He looked down, he had to hide far away, and sometimes simply lay on the ground without being hugged. 

Even if there are some novel things downstairs sometimes, he really wants to see it, he has to close the window tightly, so he dared to stand on the chair and take a long look. 

But that day, he was strangely standing by the window. There must be something wrong. Later, my sister-in-law told me that it was his father who promised him to buy skittles for him to eat, as long as he eats obediently. 

So he finished the meal by himself that day, and has been waiting for his father to come back since. The sister-in-law went to another room and called her cousin quietly, “You must buy it later. He is looking forward to it. He is standing by the window waiting for you. Don’t forget it again like last time.”

< p>I heard from my sister-in-law that last time my cousin promised to bring him toys back, but when he came back, he walked in a hurry and forgot. The little nephew cried for more than two hours, and then he simply ignored his father, and he didn’t care about him anymore. Nothing was promised, the little nephew didn’t believe it anymore. 

He didn’t reluctantly believe in his father until he brought the toys back later. After about half an hour, the cousin came back, with Rainbow Hall, and the little nephew was full of joy. 

Many parents are always labeled as “talking is not counted” by their children. Sometimes it is obviously something the parents have promised. But later, the children have completed the requirements, but the parents are unwilling to honor them. Promise of. 

The reason is that they feel that the promises they made at the beginning, such as playing games for children, taking children to play, and buying things for children, are all detrimental to children’s learning, so they don’t want to realize them. As everyone knows, these “rogue” behaviors of parents will eventually come at the cost of children deviating from the path of growth. 

Later the child’s These performances have betrayed the parents’ original lies.

1. Unwilling to believe their parents

Many parents always complain that their children are not obedient, and their children don’t believe me…

Before complaining about this, first think about whether you have lied to your children. The lie here includes not only lying to your children, but also failure to keep your promises to your children. 

If you have these behaviors, you are not entitled to complain about them. After all, your child once trusted you, but you overthrew the child’s trust. 

Therefore, if you want your child to believe in you, you must first “keep your promise.” Trust is mutual. Since you “cannot do it”, don’t complain about your child’s “distrust”. 

2. Lying becomes sexual

They all say that parents are role models for children. If parents always have the habit of lying to children, then children will also “learn how” they will lie to their parents in the future. Lie to friends around you. 

First, start to lie about the little things around you, such as not finishing homework, cheating on the teacher to lose the homework, or mother not telling me the homework, etc., and then shirk responsibility in the workplace. And such a person will not have much success in society after all. 

3. Lack of integrity.

Parents are unwilling to keep their promises after lying. Such behavior is particularly lack of integrity and is of the same nature as habitual lying. 

Do you want your child to become such a person in the future? When a person does not abide by his promises for a long time in society, some people may forgive him for the first time or the second time, but once the number of times increases, others will know that this person lacks integrity and is not worthy of deep friendship. Even less trustworthy, such a person will not make a difference. 

Friends do not dare to have a deep friendship with them, and leaders do not dare to trust and deliver important tasks. How can they gain a foothold in the workplace and sort out interpersonal relationships? 

So, don’t let your current lies spread, and let your child’s growth pay the price for it. Parents should “set up” their words and deeds instead of “shooting empty targets.”
