Speaking about the aspirations, Kazim said:
“MomMatters is a book that shares tips and tricks plus do’s and don’ts for desi mom’s. This book is just the first of a series of books. I’ve been through two pregnancies and one miscarriage. My journey has been tough but also very fulfilling. What I did feel is that in Pakistan there is no support group and no information related to South Asian women and their issues in terms of motherhood. Our lifestyles, food, culture, beliefs, everything is different.Yet, we rely on western media and info to guide us through one of the most important parts of our lives. I hope to write books to help women understand and enjoy the beautiful journey of motherhood while balancing it with their other responsibilities. It is important to know about mom matters and also to know that moms matter.”
