Serena Williams Opens Up About Emergency C-Section

Serena had planned to return to the court in Melbourne and despite being fit, said she did not feel at the level required to compete.

The tennis champion, in her cover story in Vogue, shared how her medical history left her bedridden after she had her baby Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Olympia was born by emergency C-section after her heart rate dove dangerously low during contractions. Serena insisted something was wrong, and a doctor was called to perform an ultrasound on her legs. A coughing spell from the pulmonary embolism also caused Ms. Williams' c-section wound to open.

"For me, the biggest thing was when I lost the first six finals of the year, I didn't let it really put me down", the 27-year-old said after her Singapore triumph."I looked at the positive and said I put myself in contention nearly every week and eventually it will have to turn".

What followed was a traumatic six-day a pulmonary embolism (when arteries in the lungs become blocked by a blood clot) that led to multiple surgeries and complications.

The statement said the captives should have been handed over to police in line with procedures amid on-going attacks. But the military has insisted that there has been no wrongdoing by any security forces.

Appearing on the cover of Vogue's newest edition, alongside her newborn baby Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., William's opened up to the style bible about motherhood, and just how hard it can be.

Small blood clots were found in her lungs and she needed anticoagulants.

"Actually, I think having a baby might help". "Consider for a moment that your body is one of the greatest things on this planet, and you're trapped in it". And the night nurse she had planned to hire had fallen through.

Following her surgeries, she was forced to spend her first six weeks of motherhood unable to get out of bed. Serena Williams is just one of many Black moms who experience serious complications during or after childbirth, and is more clear evidence that not enough is being done to make sure Glack moms get the treatment they deserve.

Despite all the times that Williams has been criticised for her appearance, she awards her mother for insuring she never lost her self-assurance.

She said: "Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can't do this". I've broken down I don't know how many times.

"Knowing I've got this lovely baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match". Williams now has 23, but she is aware of what's in the record books and wants to win 25.

Williams said that despite the physical stresses from having a baby, she was in a far better place mentally than she'd ever been throughout her career. I'd like her to have a normal life.
