Serena Williams opens up about her scary birth and postpartum complications

Tennis champ, Serena Williams, and her new husband, Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, welcomed their baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on September 1 of last year.
She and Olympia (Serena prefers to call her little girl by her middle name, while Alexis calls her Junior) are on the February cover of Vogue, and in her candid interview, the new mom opened up about her marriage, pregnancy and the intense after-birth experience. The interview starts off at Serena’s home as she discusses her tennis career and her fears about being a great mother.
Although she had what seemed like a flawless pregnancy, she experienced a lot of scary complications for almost two months postpartum.
It all started after Serena’s emergency C-section?Olympia’s heart rate plummeted quite low during Serena’s contractions. After the baby arrived, all seemed to be going well?Alexis even cut the umbilical cord and their baby girl was laid on her mother’s chest. ?That was an amazing feeling,? Serena recalls. ?And then everything went bad.?

8 reasons why Serena Williams is going to slay motherhood While in recovery the next day, she started to feel short of breath. Due to a previous fall, Serena is prone to blood clots and having experienced them before, she knew exactly what she needed. She left her room so she wouldn’t worry her mother (that’s strength right there!) and told the nearest nurse what was happening?though they didn’t quite believe her. Sure enough, she had small blood clots in her lungs. ?I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!? she said. But it didn’t end there. This was, unfortunately, the start of a six-day ordeal.
Her fresh C-section wound popped open from the intense coughing spells caused by the pulmonary embolism, and when she returned to surgery, they found a large hematoma in her abdomen?the result of the blood thinners she was given to slow the blood clot.

Thinking about mommy and daddy
A post shared by Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. (@olympiaohanian) on Sep 13, 2017 at 11:46am PDT

Serena was sent home a week after her surgery, but spent her first six weeks of motherhood bedridden.
?I was happy to change diapers,? Alexis said, ?but on top of everything she was going through, the feeling of not being able to help made it even harder. Consider for a moment that your body is one of the greatest things on this planet, and you?re trapped in it.?
Poor Serena!
“Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can?t do this. It?s that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. I guess that?s just who I am. No one talks about the low moments?the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry. I?v...
