Our Russian roommate says the the birthrate of Russia is beginning to grow by tiny fractions. At the hospital where she worked the number rises by 10 or 15 births on average above the previous years average.

Another thing that's going on seemingly unnoticed is a migration out of the cities. Along with the migration to the country there has been a resurgence of birthing by midwife and those children often go uncounted for a few years.

My wife was a child psychologist in Volgograd where we have a second home. The Russian economy is improving by leaps and bounds, and the people have more income, and she says she has never seen so many pregnant women in her life there as now. Indeed, many of our Russian friends are pregnant, have had babies recently, or are trying to have children. Things are very improved.

They are anecdotal but interesting. For Russia's sake, I hope they are true. They MAY be.
