I once saw a film where a had came out of a guys shoulder.

I was sure that this is how babies where born, and this belief was reinforced when I was at my friends house, whose mum was a nurse, and she had a strange yellow pointy stick think in a drawer. I still have no idea what the hell it was, but I thought at the time that the yellow pointy stick was used to cut a circle out of whoever was having the babies upper back/shoulder area, and then the baby would be pulled out. I believed this for years, until it slowly dawned on me that there was rather more to it than that...

My Aunt is a family doctor, and once told me about a 29, that's 29 year old woman who came ot her with her first pregnancy.

So my aunt settled her down for a pelvic examination, and the woman was actingas if she was extremely uncomfortable. Finally, my aunt actually started to do the internal, and the woman leapt up, pushed her hand away, proclaimed, 'Not there Doctor!' and burst into tears.

It turned out that she had somehow been under the impression that babies were born through the umbilical cord, and the process of labour was the time when the cord extended out - much like an extendable staircase, or tje emergency slide on an airplane - from the belly button.

Some people need to pay attention in sex-ed.

When I was young I saw my Mom's bellybutton and I thought it looked wrinkly. So I asked her why her bellybutton looked that way and she told me (not sure why) that it was from when I was born. So after that I believed baby's were born out of bellybuttons.

For several years, between the ages of about seven and eleven, I believed my sister when she told me my Uncle Bob wasn't born until he was 21. I used to worry over how he lived inside her and about how she gave birth to him.

I never understood when a mother gave birth, how the doctors found out if it was a boy or a girl. They shouted, "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" when it came out, I just thought that when the doctor slapped the baby's butt, that was the deciding factor and he would automatically know.

When I was little, like 5 or so, I thought that when a woman was having a baby, every time she went to the bathroom she pushed a little and the baby came out a little, and it took a while like days for it to be born all the way. I don't know what I thought, maybe that she would walk around with a baby hanging out of her or something, but hey, I was 5!!

I used to believe that babies came out of the mom's belly button. I knew they came out of a hole in the body but being small I had no idea where this hole would be other than the belly button. Kinda figured what else was it good for.

Once when I was seven or eight years old, my mom asked me if I knew where (on the body) babies come from. "Yeah," I said, "your butt."

I used to believe that babies were born from eggs (dinosaur eggs) and they would sit on them and keep them warm until they were ready to hatch

I used to think that to have a baby, the doctors had to cut your tummy open. Needless to say, I swore never to get pregnant.

My friend convinced me when I was about six that the way we got hair on our heads was that as we came out our mothers vagina that her pubic hair got stuck to our heads... Too bad if you mum had a brazillian!!

I used to think that a turkey baster was for giving birth. I don't know why I did, but I did. So needless to say I was horrifed when a family friend gave my mum a turkey baster for her birthday (at the end of October).

When I was little I watched Doc Hollywood with my mom and I was freaked when the lady gave birth in the car. I told my mom that I don't want to go through that, and that I would just go to people who just gave birth and ask if they wanted to keep their babies. I believed they would actually give them to me too.

When I was 4 my mum gave birth to my sister in a home-birth. I slept through the birth (it was 9.30, well past my bedtime!) but I was woken up to meet my new sister. Naturally I was quite excited as I went downstairs to find my parents sitting with the mid-wife and a close friend. The friend (a man) was holding my sister, and I refused to believe it was my mums baby; I thought she was hiding my sister from me. I figured the friend must have been also had a baby on the same night!
The only other thing I remember of that night is roasting chestnuts on an open fire. I find it hard to believe these memories are the same night but im sure they were.

I believed that children were born from a hole between a woman's breasts. I thought the hole appeared over time, which was why I didn't have one.
