BOM: Humble Beginnings

Humble Beginnings

About your humble beginnings. Record your birth statistics, just as you would for a newborn baby:
• Date of birth
• Time of birth
• Day of the week
• Weight
• Length
• Hospital / location
• Colour of eyes and hair
• Doctor / midwife
• Details of hospital stay

You might like to include events that happened on the day, or in the year you were born.

Here are some fun sites: (An Australian Site)

Personal Journaling:

Now that you have the basics about your birth, lets dig a little deeper and look at the circumstances of your birth. Were you a much wanted and eagerly anticipated baby, a happy, or not-so-happy surprise? What did your birth mean for your parents, for your family? How did they feel about having a new baby around? Why were you born?

Now take a moment to consider the way the above knowledge has impacted on your life. Has it made you feel loved and cherished, resentful, happy, unworthy, secure, comfortable?

Remember that this personal information need not be shared with anyone else. It simply gives you a starting point from which to consider your life.
