Serena is a doula, advocate and educator for the full spectrum of choice and womb care. She lives in Cumberland BC, where she teaches at an outdoor preschool, and shares her skills and knowledge in the community of the Comox Valley, on traditional Pentlach and Kā€™omoks territories. She loves to travel, connect and to share, and has been attending births as a doula since 2007, while raising her wild willed kids. She is the founder of Birthing Freedom, a rad collective of local care providers and educators who support and cheer folks on in their broad range of reproductive choice and outcomes. While trying to re-hone her tree climbing skills and figuring out what it means to be a badass mom, Serena has also been busy weaving into her practice a community based approach to mental health care, called Holistic Peer Counselling. She is pumped to be teaching an intro to this d.i.y. curriculum, along with a class about holistic approaches to childbirth and womb health, called Wild Womb. Her passion is in nurturing healing, trust and love as a part of the process of reclaiming and knowing ourselves, while on our life cycle adventures in their various phases.
