Dear Kaua'i Mums,
Being a new mother is the single most life changing event we can experience as women. Compiled stressors of trying to navigate a new identity, take on new responsibility, and dealing with the new economic strains all while being sleep deprived, motherhood is simply overwhelming.
As a new mum myself, my heart is with you in alliance. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but our villages are no longer what they once were; they are digital. We must recreate our version of a village, we must recreate our version of community, and we must recreate our version of home, whatever that looks like.
Well babies must always be a priority, but well mothers are our passion, our kuleana. Let us connect heart to heart, soul to soul, and redefine support.
The Hazel Jansen Foundation is a dignity centered non-profit, breaking the cycle of poverty by providing trauma informed resources, babycare essentials, and scholarships for mothers with economic barriers, creating a positive trajectory for the whole family.
The Hazel Jansen Foundation believes when a baby is born, so is a mother. Therefore, we must hold onto mothers with the same careful hands we use to hold onto their babies. When we support and heal women in our communities, we support and heal communities themselves.
