The ContentStart property is often used to insert content to the beginning of a FlowDocument.

// Create a new, empty FlowDocument.
FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument();

// Insert an initial paragraph at the beginning of the empty FlowDocument.
flowDoc.Blocks.Add(new Paragraph(new Run(
    "Since the new FlowDocument is empty at this point, this will be the initial content " +
    "in the FlowDocument."
)));
// Insert a line-break at the beginnign of the document, before the previously inserted paragraph.
flowDoc.Blocks.InsertBefore(flowDoc.Blocks.FirstBlock, new Paragraph(new LineBreak()));
// Insert another paragraph at the beginning of the document.
flowDoc.Blocks.InsertBefore(flowDoc.Blocks.FirstBlock, new Paragraph(new Run(
    "This paragraph will be inserted before the previously added paragraph, replacing the previously" +
    "added paragraph as the first paragraph in the document."
)));
