Yesterday we discussed how your family began regarding how your grandparents and parents met each other and how you met your spouse if you are married. Now, let’s talk about babies. Where were your parents born – at home? In a hospital? Do you know anything about your parents’ births? Do you know anything about your own birth? If you have children, I’m sure you know all about their births! If you’ve already written your children’s birth stories, you can copy those stories into where ever you are keeping your family’s story. If you want to include baby pictures, that would be great too!
Something interesting about the births of myself and my husband is that they were very different from each other. My mom gave birth to be vaginally – even though I was in a breech position. (Today, just about all breech babies have scheduled c-sections, but my mom didn’t even know I was breech until she was in labor with me.) My mother-in-law had a difficult pregnancy with my husband and was in the hospital on bed rest for much of it. He was born via c-section.
I would love for you to tell me about the births in your family’s history either in the comments or by leaving me a link to your post on this topic!
