I used to think that babies were born from the mother's belly button.

Growing up it was my mom, dad, my younger sister and I. At some point I remember asking my mom if she had my sister and our dad had me. I knew there was a difference between boys and girls so it made sense that boys gave birth to boys, and girls gave birth to girls.

I was born via c-section and I used to think that all babies were born via c-section, open the mother's belly they used a chainsaw and a pair of kitchen scissors, and then a baby just jumped out.

My mom had a cesarean section when she gave birth to me and my siblings, so I thought all babies were born by the doctors slicing open the mother's stomach and taking out the baby. Strangely, this didn't really frighten me.

When I was little I thought that women got pregnant randomly, and that men had nothing to do with the process of pregnancy. This caused me to believe that I was in no way related to my dad, and he was just some person who we decided to live with.

when I was very young I thought there was no such things as baby's. and that god would build us then just drop us through a hole in the clouds, equipped with a parachute. and we floated down to earth as you were. young...old, what ever.

This isn't mine, but my niece's. A while back, my sister and brother in law did that gender-reveal thing where they open a bag of balloons and the balloons were blue, meaning they were having a boy. My niece was devastated because she wanted a sister. But then she had an idea. When nobody was looking, she painted the balloons pink, thinking that would make the baby a girl. For months she continually insisted that the baby was a girl, throwing a tantrum whenever her parents would try to correct her. Even after the baby was born, she would call him Annie instead of Andy.

That was years ago. They're both in their teens now, and she still jokingly refers to him as her sister.

When I was little I used to believe babies came from stores. When my little brother was born I was mad at my parents for picking a boy.

I thought that doctors would climb into a mom's vagina to coach the baby out. Then the mom would have to push both out.

I thought that a c-section was when a bunch of doctors climbed in because the baby was stubborn. I was told that I was born by a c-section, and I felt so bad that I had caused her that much pain!

Me and my sister used to think that when babies were born, they came out through the anus, and I believed for quite a while that all the babies a mom would have just waited in the stomach, each sleeping on a bunk bed carved into the mom's stomach skin, and they would just kind of slowly roll off the bunk bed every so often, and the moms stomach would grow until she went to a doctor and the doctor would pull the baby out.
So me and my sister would lay on the stairs, pretending to be babies in the mom's stomach, having adventures in "Stomachworld" until the doctor would come and take us.

I thought they cut your stomach to get the baby out so I was scared of getting married and pregnant for the longest time. Once on the bus some boys were talking about the real way to give birth. I did not know what they were talking about. I learned the truth when I was 10.

I used to believe that when a woman loses the waters before giving birth, she loses her bones! Because in French water and bone have got the same prononciation.

I was about 8 when i asked my grandmother how babies were born and she said, "Well, they come out of your moms stomach." Then the next day i went to my other grandma's house with my cousin who new how babies were born. When i asked her why she is so short and she said, "I came out on a emergency threw my moms stomach." I was shocked.

I used to believe that when you were pregnant, if you went to the toilet your baby would come out.

I was born by emergency c-section. When I asked my parents how I was born, they said I was cut out of my mum's stomach. They never mentioned it was an emergency so I just thought everyone was born with the doctor cutting a square in your mum's stomach and, grabbing you out and then sowing her back up.

I had the mechanics of childbirth figured out pretty early, but then a family friend had a "breech" baby. My mom explained that meant it came out backwards. I spent a long time thinking normal babies came out the front and breech babies came out the back.

Most kids are told that the baby comes from mommy's tummy. Well, I took that literally and thought that babies were barfed up when they were born. It made perfect sense to me since I threw up when my tummy was upset - I figured if a baby was in your tummy your tummy would get upset and you'd barf the baby up . I couldn't wrap my head around how a baby could fit out of a persons mouth and thought maybe their jaws came unhinged, like a snake, and that they couldn't breath while they were doing it. I was born with a big ol' bump on my head that they removed a few months after I was born. I believed thoroughly that the bump was due to hitting my mom's teeth on the way out. Turns out if was just forceps.
