Serena Williams reveals health scare after birth of daughter Olympia

Serena Williams reveals health scare after birth of daughter Olympia

Serena Williams, in more ways than one, is the epitome of Black female excellence.

A less talked about reason why the disparity exists is the implicit bias medical professionals may have toward Black women and how to best handle their treatment.

Serena experienced a wave of medical and emotional issues after giving birth to her first child a year ago, according to a report. Thankfully, the surgery was successful and a lovely, healthy baby emerged.

Little Alexis was fine after her September birth, but Williams said that "everything went bad" for her personally. Serena has a history of blood clots, and had been off her anticoagulant meds because of the surgery. Williams was correct as doctors discovered that she had developed multiple clots in her lungs. Intense coughing caused her surgery wound to open and a haematoma was found in her abdomen. With Serena Williams not ready to defend her title after giving birth to her first child, Halep and the resurgent Wozniacki are among the women bidding to grasp an opportunity in Melbourne.

She returned home a week later to an entirely different type of bad news: the night nurse had fallen through.

"I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian explained to Vogue.

For someone as courageous and strong as Williams, she's admitted to feeling doubt when it comes to motherhood.

She said: "That was an fantastic feeling (being handed her daughter)".

Being in bed instead of really enjoying your baby right after they're born wasn't an ideal situation and something that Williams admitted really tested her. It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes.

Boris Becker, who knows a bit about both winning grand slams and star appeal, believes the landscape at the top of the women's game is just too confused at the moment. Williams was able to discuss the trauma of her birth experience from the safety of her living room, but many other American women, especially those also of color, nearly certainly would not have had the same experience.

The absence of Williams at the 2018 Australian Open drastically impacts the field in women's singles tennis. She's one of the highest ranked tennis players in the world.

"Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams", she said.

A casual reader of the only pregnancy book I suggest to friends, "Expecting Better", can easily see that pregnancy recommendations are often based on out-of-date information or the belief that US women about to become mothers are incapable of understanding moderation or ways to mitigate risk during pregnancy and childbirth. "It's not a secret that I have my sights on 25 (Grand Slams)". 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 attractive baby?' The emotions are insane". "I told you, I need a CT scan and a heparin drip".

"My arms might not look like the girl over there or my legs might not look like someone else or my butt or my body or my anything, if they [do] have a problem with it then I look them in the eye and say, 'If you don't like it, I don't want you to like it".
