About Author: Beth Barbeau
Beth Barbeau, midwife and educator, began attending homebirths in 1979 as the 16-year-old babysitter for the big kids. She has taught Childbirth Education classes for over 25 years, and recently launched A New Baby in the House to meet the unique needs of adopting parents. A life-long interest in providing better support and resources to families after the six week visit led Beth this spring to open Indigo Forest Co.: Growing Healthy Lives, a family-focused store and studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She and her stunt choreographer husband, Christopher, are parents to two homebirthed boys, Jianmarco (7) and Marcellin (5).
