Definition of IMHC “Integrated Maternity Healthcare”
When the medical and the holistic, the contemporary and the traditional , the mainstream and the alternative all respect how they complement each other, and form a united revolution of cohesive evolution, to create the ultimate in Best Practice Maternity Care.
