Serena Williams Talks About The Terrifying Complications She Faced After Giving Birth

At 20 weeks pregnant, with the smallest of baby bumps, she posted a picture on Snapchat of her athletic body, in a yellow swimsuit.

At four months old their baby girl (Serena calls her Olympia while Alexis prefers Junior) is doing great, and Serena is getting stronger by the day.

Simona Halep, meanwhile, shouldn't need to prove a point given she tops the world rankings.

Injury and illness stalled her initial return to the circuit but a Tianjin Open win in October and run to the Shenzhen Open semi-finals suggests the five-time major victor is nearing her best and the 2008 champion will expect to go deep in Melbourne. Thankfully, the surgery was successful and a handsome, healthy baby emerged.

Williams' harrowing childbirth story has ignited a conversation about the high rates of maternal mortality and birth complications in the United States, which black women face at an alarmingly disproportionate rate.

. Serena has a history of blood clots, and had been off her anticoagulant meds because of the surgery.

"That was an unbelievable feeling", Serena recalled.

Serena was found to have a pulmonary embolism, and the coughing it caused meant her C-section wound burst open.

According to Vogue, Alexis Ohanian, the happy father and co-founder of Reddit, cut the cord, and Olympia was laid on her mother's chest."And then everything went bad", Williams, 36, told Vogue in an interview confirmed by her publicist.

To prevent more clots from dislodging and traveling into her lungs, Ms. Williams told Vogue she underwent another surgery to have a filter inserted into one of her veins.

Vogue says she spent six weeks unable to get out bed. "But on top of everything she was going through, the feeling of not being able to help made it even harder".

She said that while she was pleased with her recovery and her progress, she was "not where I personally want to be". "That's a different feeling for me". It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. "(The) incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry ...

Williams says the experience has taken an emotional toll on her as well.

"Knowing I've got this lovely baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match". The emotions are insane.

Despite irking her critics with a tendency to paint herself as a victim, the 30-year-old has been welcomed back with open arms by fans and tournament organisers alike.

Despite all the times that Williams has been criticised for her appearance, she awards her mother for insuring she never lost her self-assurance. But she doesn't want Alexis Jr.to follow her career path and become a professional tennis player. "It's so much work, and I've given up so much". The same medication used to treat the embolism (and likely saved her life) had also caused bleeding at the surgical site.
