My ethos

At bump  &  glide, mothers are at the heart of everything I do.

There is a wealth of information on how to care for babies, but nowhere near enough on how to care for mothers, at this life-changing time in both their lives, and careers.

You need knowledge, support and to feel in control in order to have the confidence to make informed decisions at every stage of this exciting, and sometimes daunting, journey.


I provide individuals and companies alike with a bespoke support structure enabling them to transition more smoothy and confidently into parenthood and work.

About me

My name is Serena Williams, mother of two, Communications professional, Mental Health First Aider, Maternity Mentor and Perinatal Educator living in the New Forest, Hampshire, UK.


My mission is to help women

and employers have a much smoother transition into parenthood, maternity and work. 

"Today, not only does our culture not offer any practical support to new mothers, but it also puts immense pressure on them to 'get on with it' which can lead to feelings of guilt, shame and inadequacy."
