Since this is a kanji with hiragana attached that ends with an う sound, you know that this word is a verb. What's the ultimate verb version of the kanji 生? That would have to be phrased to be born. You can distinguish this one from 生む because this word is longer. Why is it longer? Because "to be born" must be a horrifying feeling. Although giving birth must be painful too, just imagine how long and terrifying getting born must be. That's why it feels longer.
You have to remember the う part of this word to read it. To remember that, let's use a mnemonic:
Just imagine someone being born. All they do is scream: UUUUUuuUuuUUUuuuUUUuu (う) the whole time. Go ahead and imagine yourself being born and doing the same thing. Say UUUuuUUuuu out loud to help you to remember.
