I was wondering why we can not remember any memories of being in the womb?
For me, it was a pretty uneventful time of my life. All I can remember is things being kind of mushy, and my fingers felt thick. Other than that, nada.I was wondering why we can not remember any memories of being in the womb?
Because the parts of the brain responsible for conscious memory are not yet fully developed (and won't be until a few months after birth).
I think this is the best we can do at the moment, so thread is closed.Most people's earliest memories start when they are 2-3 years old. The brain is simply not well enough developed before then to lay down long term memories.
