1- Listen to my 30 minute full presentation from EcoBirth's website. You will be able to see my 3 minute digital story too, as a sample of what we can create together.

Consider the below questions in pulling together your photos, locations and story:

What is your maternal grandmother's name, where and when was she born and what is her birth story?
 Do you have a photo of her as a baby? And any old photos of her birthplace?
 Can you find a current photo of her birthplace? Try googling her address.
Where did your maternal grandmother get her name?
What was happening during your grandmother's time- during her gestation and lifetime?
What environment did she grow up in? Physical and psychological?

What is your mother's name, where and when was she born and what is her birth story?

2-Find an icon, photo or symbol that is multi-generational to represent a part of your story graphically. Photograph it or scan it so we can use it in the digital story.


3-Create a Historypin My Personal Environmental Story account and upload the photos of your mother and maternal grandmother, yourself and your children and grandchildren and your icon. I will put them into our Collection, after I favorite your photos, be sure and tell me when you upload them to this great site. You can locate your photos on a timeline and on maps too. We will be able to use these photos in your digital story.

5-Research The Psychology of It which contains informative and clear videos on the possible psychological effects that prenatal, perinatal and birth periods may have had on generations in your family.

6-Explore The Map of It to see what info there is concerning possible environmental hazards for the locations your mother and grandmother lived, and where you live now.

7- Create a Cowbird account and write your 350 word story, upload the most evocative of your photos. Do an audio version of your story. Name your account My Personal Environmental Story-your name. Tell me when this is done and I will copy the script and use the audio for your digital story.

8- I will make a draft of your digital story in PlaceStories, using your photos, audio and script. We can consult on the drafts together! And come up with what you like best.
9-See if there are any organizations to whom you would give your digital story, I have listed some wonderful organizations The Acting on It.
