The KAZ Project seeks to reduce the isolation and singular focus that comes with parenting by supporting parents through education, midwifery care, community and support. We work with families to empower, educate and uplift while providing care to support healing and wellbeing in the early stages of the parenting journey.
The Kaz Project
Postpartum | pōstˈpärdəm
Postpartum is defined as the time immediately after childbirth. At the KAZ Project we believe that it is so much more than this. It is a time of transition, growth, hard work, pause and exploration. The time after birth is a time for gathering of community and support to usher new parents into their new life.
