Welcome to the IIMHCO Conference Overview page.

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

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 are now tremendously excited to be planning the next Integrative Maternity HealthCare global summit. And we are 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.

The IIMHCO Conference 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.
