Philip Perkhov and Katerina Perkhova

Letter from Jan Tritten

When the lovely young couple who publish Home Child magazine in Russia joined us last year at our Copenhagen conference, I had no idea that this meeting would birth such amazing ideas and start to shake up the birth movement on an international level. Since meeting Katerina Perkhova and her husband, Philip Perkhov, I have been so blessed, I am almost without words. Many of us who attended our June conference in Moscow, Russia (one of the many good things to come from that initial meeting in Copenhagen!), have felt the ground around us start to move in a way it never has before. We want you all to be part of this global midwifery movement.

Please read the rest of Jan's editorial on the Russia conference here.

Each time we stopped for a crumpet or coffee at this bakery/flower shop, they also made us a corsage.
