Life can be tough when you are a tiny inconsequential cell in the Left Ovary with a big dream. And that is what the narrator of “Before the First Breath – The Memoirs of A Newborn” quickly discovers. A tiny cell, in the Left Ovary, with just half the number of chromosomes - she dreams of being born – a complete human being.
After having neglect heaped upon her through her Mom’s childhood and narrowly escaping extinction on several occasions, when she finally meets the handsome sperm - and becomes ‘that cell who is one day going to be born a baby’ – her life turns into a series of deadlines. Organs have to be grown - breathing, sucking and swallowing have to practiced to perfection and so much more accomplished – all in 280 days!
Will she make it?
After much anxiety and many adventures - yes she does!
Cozily ensconced in a blanket in her Mom’s arms now – she tells us her amazing tale.
