Studies on Consciousness before Being Born – the Pre-birth Experience

Studies on Consciousness before Being Born – the Pre-birth Experience | Natural Spirituality | Scoop.it
It is usually assumed that our consciousness begins with birth and that memory gets recorded from then on. In reality, consciousness seems to exist at the stage of the fetus itself and a kind of ‘knowingness’ seems to operate even as early.
TC Gopalakrishnan's insight:

Studies have shown that consciousness enters the baby well before its birth.  It is interesting to note how the baby remembers the activity of its mother and others around her while it is still in the womb.  It is curious that this esoteric fact has been alluded to in the story of the Mahabharata from ancient India.
