"I Almost Lost My Life After Giving Birth"....Serena Williams Speaks On Motherhood

serena williams speaks on motherhood-celebrity news
Tennis superstar, Serena Williams, has made a revelation that she nearly lost her life last year during childbirth.  The mother of one also disclosed that she needed an emergency C-section and she had to be subjected to multiple surgeries after giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia.

Serena got married to Alexis Ohanian an American Internet entrepreneur and co-founder and executive chairman of the social news website Reddit in November last after they welcomed their patter of tiny feet.

In her interview with vogues Magazine, Serena mentioned that she experienced a wave of medical and emotional issues immediately after the birth daughter.
She further stated that the day after the operation, she fell ill and doctors found several small clots in her lungs. Then she suffered another terrifying scare when her C-section scar burst open and doctors found a large haematoma (a solid swelling of clotted blood within the tissues) had flooded her abdomen.

Serena, who has a history of blood clots, was the one that raised the alarm after she found herself feeling short of breath a day after becoming a mum. Because she had been taking blood-thinners to dispel the clots, the medication caused bleeding at the site of the Caesarian section.

She had to be taken in for another surgical operation and was discharged after a week. She eventually went home and it was then she realised that she couldn’t get out of bed on her own.

The baby, Alexis Olympia, was born via emergency Caesarean section due to her alarmingly low heart rate. The baby’s health stabilised after birth since she was subjected to intensive care, but Serena said that “everything went bad” for her personally.

“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.” she confessed

She also revealed that she has broken down frequently since becoming a mother.
“Or I’ll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, ‘Why do I feel so sad when I have a beautiful baby?’ The emotions are insane,” she said.
