It is with much sadness to confirm the Maternity Natural Health Symposium in Auckland NZ on 22-23 March is postponed – for obvious reasons.  
We will advise, as soon as feasible, the new dates for this event.


Welcome to the Maternity Natural Health Symposium

We are so thrilled to confirm dates for the second ever exclusive international conference on Integrative Maternity HealthCare for March 2020.

After our inaugural “SOMCANZ” conference in 2015 [Symposium of Maternity Carers NZ] which truly exceeded our wildest expectations, and the subsequent joint SOMCANZ-AIMA conferences of 2016 and 2017 [Australasian Integrative Medicine Assoc], we were then tremendously excited to be planning a next exclusive Integrative Maternity HealthCare global summit for late 2019, with our title re-born (a very apt description in the circumstance) as IIMHCO [International Integrative Maternity HealthCare Organization] in line with the growing worldwide demand from Women and Maternity healthcare professionals, for a new more humanistic paradigm … one in which the woman’s Midwife and Obstetrician are familiar with Integrative Medicine.

However, by mid 2019 it became strongly evident that the Public – the Women themselves as potential consumers of Maternity Integrative Healthcare – also want direct access to learning the latest from the world’s leading holistic perinatal wellness Experts. So, a difficult but correct decision was made to postpone and reformat the 2019 conference into a health professional & consumer expo called the Maternity Natural Health Symposium, to be held on Sunday 22nd March 2020.

IIMHCO is a gathering of the Tribe of all Maternity Specialists from all therapeutic modalities, to connect and communicate … from Midwives to Medical Herbalists, from Obstetricians to Osteopaths, from Hypnobirthers to Homeopaths … IIMCHO is the umbrella that brings together under one roof, the medical and holistic, the contemporary and traditional, and the mainstream and alternative, in a united revolution of cohesive evolution, to create the ultimate in Best Maternity Care.

Thus, the evolution of Maternal and Neonatal Integrative HealthCare continues, and we are tremendously excited about the rapid progression!
