It is commonly thought that you cannot remember anything about one’s birth, what happened inside the maternal womb and on childbirth. Experimental investigations have, however, highlighted the existence of a fetal memory, as the fetus would seem to be able to memorize and learn prematurely. However, these are unconscious memories, which are not easily retrievable and expressible.
The purpose of this study was to verify whether and how pregnancy and birth patterns affect the lifestyle of an adult subject.
50 volunteer students of the Degree Course in Psychological Sciences and Techniques of the University of Catania took part in the research. The sample was subjected to the regression technique, and then a nine-question questionnaire was given out to be filled in anonymously. Only 15 out of 50 subjects returned it completed.
The results obtained have shown how the experience of rebirth influences the quality of present life.
One observes how the experience of regression is significantly correlated with the perception of one’s self and how subjects can retrieve memories of unconscious feelings that experience has led them to live, which may partly account for one’s personality.
