Dr. Akira Ikegawa runs an obstetrics and gynecology clinic in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, and also gives lectures throughout Japan as a leading researcher on Prenatal Memory. Dr. Ikegawa said says when he asked children who have Prenatal Memory about the reasons why they were born, they always answer, “To help people” and “To make mothers happy by their birth and presence.” Yumiko Tobitani and Chikako Kagami who are experts in early childhood education talk about Prenatal Memory in their classes. The camera captures the scene during some actual research on Prenatal and Pre-birth Memory when Professor Masayuki Ohkado at Chubu University and Dr. Akira Ikegawa conducted interviews with children and their mothers. Please feel and reflect with the researchers on how interpreting Prenatal Memory affects the bond between mother and child. The second half of the film is about the developments in the field of Prenatal Memory research by overseas researchers. I accompanied the Prenatal Memory Global Project team from Japan to cover the APPPAH (Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health) International Congress which was held in the US in 2019.
