Through her own lived experience, Serena Williams founded bump & glide, following the realisation that the support available for mothers and organisations is severely lacking in our society around the perinatal time.
Serena Williams (she/her/hers), Founder of bump & glide is a Communications Professional, Maternity Mentor, Mental Health First Aider and an Award-winning Perinatal Educator based in the New Forest, Hampshire.
Following a successful 12 year career working in the corporate world of luxury goods, both in the U.K and in France, Serena found that the support career women receive perinatally is severely lacking and went on to create comprehensive sessions for individuals and businesses with a 360º approach: bump & glide 'tool kits'.
The support that bump & glide provides is instrumental in ensuring expectant and new parents feel heard, respected and cared for, and that organisations have a clear supportive structure in place during a time of pivotal transition for all involved.
Serena’s diverse 20 years experience in Communication and Human Resources roles, in addition to her own lived experience of pregnancy birth and motherhood over the past eight years has provided her with the knowledge, know-how and skill set to effectively support employers and their employees at such a pivotal time in their lives and careers, both personally and professionally.
Serena’s upbeat problem-solving attitude, experience, extensive independent research, passion, dedication and belief in the positive outcomes that can stem from life transitions drives her to positively impact people’s experience of what can be a hugely challenging time.
