Katerina Perkova

Katerina PerkovaI am a journalist, editor and chief of a Russian magazine about natural parenting called Domashny Rebenok (Home Child). I am also the editor of the Russian edition of Midwifery Today. I have also proudly helped Midwifery Today organize international midwifery conferences in 2010 and 2011 in Russia. In addition, I am also a birth activist and the director of Russian NGO, MAMA.

I am a mother of 3, and my last birth was unassisted. After our first home birth we were so excited, my husband Phillip and I promised to do all we possibly can to change the situation of home birth in Russia. It is still illegal and it continues to be very hard for midwives to attend them.

I believe that together - mothers and midwives from all over the world - will make every baby and mother happy!
