Serena has been open about her easy pregnancy, and was eight weeks along when she won the Australian Open in January, but has now revealed to Vogue magazine that she had a hard labor and Olympia was born by emergency caesarean section because her "heart rate dove dangerously low during contractions".

She has now told Vogue she had an emergency caesarean section after the baby's heart rate dropped to a dangerously low level.

"That was an unbelievable feeling", Williams said when she heard Alexis' first cry.

'That was an unbelievable feeling, and then everything went bad, ' said Williams.

Williams had a pulmonary embolism, or blood clots in her lungs.

The next day while still in the hospital, Williams suddenly fell short of breath.

"I was like, a Doppler? I told you, I need a CT scan and a heparin drip".

Williams, who had to stop taking her anticoagulant medications leading up the delivery, was right, and had indeed developed several clots in her lungs. "I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!".

13 dead, several injured in southern California mudslides and heavy rain
Mudslides unleashed by a ferocious storm demolished homes in southern California , authorities said Tuesday. This follows last month's wildfires in Southern California, which were intensified by the Santa Ana winds.


The ordeal continued for another six days.

Doctors were forced to make a decision about the next turn of events and she returned to go under the knife yet again to have a filter put into one of her veins to prevent more blood clots.

Having Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr to get back home to, she believes, will help her realise her new wishes. She also didn't have a night nurse to take care of her daughter. The Olympic athlete discussed being a new mom, her recent marriage to baby Alexis' dad and namesake, Alexis Ohanian, and her yet-to-come tennis comeback. "I want to teach her that there are no limits".

"Consider for a moment that your body is one of the greatest things on this planet, and you're trapped in it".

Williams said the first few months of being a mother has caused her to break down countless times, adding that the "emotions are insane". No one talks about the low moments -the pressure you feel, the incredible let down every time you hear the baby cry.

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'".

With already 206K followers on Instagram, it is clear that baby Olympia is a star alongside her mommy.
