Serena's intuitive approach to women's care is what I felt really made her so special as a midwife.  She was so available for us with any questions, trusted my intuition as a woman, and guided me with so much support in those times of need.  Her post partum care was over the top...I was really needing a lot of support and she was right there for me, a phone call away any time of day.  During our birth, Serena's presence was strong in a very subtle way.  She was there when I needed her, and also gave me space for my birth to unravel on its own.  I couldn't imagine having had this prenatal, birth and postnatal journey without her.
