Serena Williams Needed Emergency C-Section, Details Health Problems After Giving Birth

Serena Williams Needed Emergency C-Section, Details Health Problems After Giving Birth

She has now told Vogue she had an emergency caesarean section after the baby's heart rate dropped to a dangerously low level. Then she got clots in her lungs and needed to inject herself with a blood thinner.

'I was like, a Doppler? "I told you, I need a CT scan and a heparin drip", Williams said to the team of nurses. Doctors learned shortly after that she had several small clots in her lungs but she healed like a champ. "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 handsome baby?' The emotions are insane", she explained.

Then her C-section scar split open due to coughing brought on by the embolism.

Williams went home a week later, but was unable to leave her bed for six weeks.

Tennis star Serena Williams is opening up about her medical ordeal giving birth and the life-threatening complications she experienced afterward. Instead, the nurse gave her an ultrasound.

Doctors say Williams' experience should remind women to take care of themselves during pregnancy.

The tennis superstar and her Reddit co-founder partner Alexis Ohanian welcomed Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September (17), with the couple marrying two months later in New Orleans. "No one talks about the low moments-the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry", she said.

She now has her sights set on a March return at Indian Wells, and fired a warning shot to her rivals.

"I've broken down I don't know how many times". "There hasn't been a clear number one since I was there".

"The memory of last year's Open is one that I will carry with me, and Olympia and I look forward to coming back again".

'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 lovely baby?" Williams has told the world repeatedly that she plays to win and it shows.

Williams also touched on experiencing intense feelings postpartum, telling the magazine that "sometimes I get really down and feel like, 'Man, I can't do this'".

"After competing in Abu Dhabi I realised that although I am super close, I'm not where I personally want to be", she said in a statement on Snapchat.
