Welcome to the IIMHCO Membership page:
Past conference attendees have made it clear they would like to have ongoing access to:
- Affordable monthly Membership Subscription that includes regular e-newsletters featuring updates on the latest breakthroughs within Integrative Maternity HealthCare – including the opportunity to submit articles for the Newsletter.
- Membership within a Practitioner Directory (designed for the Public to access) as a formally recognized “accredited IIMHCO Member”, to enable Women to access complementary therapists and alternative healers who specialise within Maternity Wellness, and to identify Obstetricians and Midwives who actively welcome clients wishing to embrace the use of holistic naturopathic modalities.
We are currently “working out all the details” of how our Membership programme will function, and full details will be announced at the 2019 Conference.
We are very excited about these developments enabling IIMHCO to reinforce our goals and values:
IIMHCO Mission Statement
A visionary aim for the revolutionary Maternity-Care cross-discipline exchange of progressive research, innovative knowledge, enlightened experience and radical ideas; in a medically professional and universally holistic environment of liberal open-mindedness; for the compelling passion to create a global impact, by giving Women worldwide access to triadic body-mind-spirit maternal-neonatal health well-being, inspired by the values of humanistic empowerment.
Definition of IMHC "Integrative 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.
IIMHCO recognises that complementary therapies can have important effects on the progress of pregnancy, labour and birth, and the postnatal period for both the woman and her baby. Maternity health professionals incorporating these therapies into their practice should either have undertaken a recognised education qualification or refer clients to appropriately qualified practitioners.
