I used to think that to give birth, a woman had a slit cut into her inner thigh, and the baby would come out.

When I was a little girl I thought babies came from your belly button. There was no other logical explanation for having one in my opinion, and they did grow in your tummy. I said it matter of factly at the dinner table one day in conversation as if it was common knowledge and got quite a funny reaction from my family. My reaction to them correcting me was even more hilarious.

I knew babies grew inside the mother, but not how they were born. I thought the mother had a door on her back that opened up, like the battery compartment some of my talking dolls had. The baby would just fall out.

When I have told this as an adult, every mother who has heard it has said something like, "if only."

One day I overheard my mum and my friends mum talking about when we were born and how much we weighed (I was 8 pounds, she was 6). Because the money in the UK is in pounds too, I thought that you had to pay to pick your baby up from the hospital and for years I thought that my mum and dad must love me more than hers did because they paid more for me.

i used to believe that when a woman has a baby it came out of her bellybutton. My mother told me that when the baby was ready the nurse would press really hard on the mothers stomach and the baby would pop out. How mortifies was I when my younger cousin (of three years) said 'No they don't they come out of here' (pointing smartly at the said area) I began to cry!!!

My wife thought that, in order to give birth, the woman would have her head cut off, and the doctor would sew it on after the delivery. Since the neck was the only "hole" that would be large enough to pass a baby through, this seemed to make sense to her.

Like a lot of other kids I believed that babies were either brought by a stork or purchased from a special baby market.
I talked to a fully pregnant lady when I was about 6 and was a little shocked that a full-size baby would live in someone's belly like that.

I believed that as soon as babies were born, they were able to crawl. I believed this until I was 25, got pregnant, and took a parenting class.

When my brother was younger, he used to think that babies grew in a woman's bladder and that she would just pee her baby out into the toilet.

When he got a little older, he though that babies grew in a woman's stomach and she would vomit her baby up.

When I was very young my mom used to jokingly tell me that when I was born, I was just a big poop. I felt so bad for my mom and any woman sporting a big belly. One day when my mother and I were on the bus, I saw a woman who looked as though she was going to bust the baby out at any moment. I went up to the lady and told her, "I hope that when you poop your baby wont hurt you too much." She just looked at my like I had two heads. My mom had to explain to me where babies really came out of.

I used to believe that to give birth you simply pressed your belly button and the baby popped out! If only it were that easy!! well why else would it be called a 'button'! Also at a different stage in my life I was worried that the baby might accidently pop out while you were on the toilet!!

Because everyone told me babies were always born in hospitals I used to believe babies could only be born in hospitals and by caesarean section.

Before I learned about anatomy I used to believe babies came from a woman's cleavage. I would sit for hours staring at women's breasts waiting for a baby to poke their head out.
