bump & glide was created following the realisation that there is so much information on how to care for babies, but nowhere near enough on how to support women at such a life, and career-changing time in their lives.
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 for LVMH, 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 a comprehensive parental transition programme with a 360º approach: The bump & glide 'tool kits'.
The support that Serena, and the other experts she works with, provide 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 huge transition.
Educated both in the U.K. and France, Serena’s diverse experience in Communication and Human Resources roles has enabled her to gain the knowledge, know-how and skill set to effectively support employers and their employees at such a pivotal time for them personally and professionally.
Serena’s own lived experience, extensive research, passion, dedication and belief in the positive outcomes that can stem from life transitions drives her to positively impact women's and employer's experience of what can be a hugely challenging time for all involved.
