Alexis Ohanian shares his fears, resolve after wife Serena Williams' labor 'ordeal'

Alexis Ohanian shares his fears, resolve after wife Serena Williams' labor 'ordeal'

"I say this without a lot of conviction, but I feel like Halep had such a disappointing 2017 in the majors and I feel she is determined to turn that around", Evert said. The potentially lifesaving blood thinner was causing hemorrhaging at the site of her c-section. Almost a third of births in the United States are, and Williams' procedure was flawless.

Williams gave birth to Olympia in September - meaning she was already eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open - and has been on the sidelines ever since. Intense coughing caused her surgery wound to open and a haematoma was found in her abdomen.

But in a recent interview with Vouge, the 23-time grand slam victor issued a warning to her future opponents. The ultrasound revealed nothing, and according to Vogue, Williams reiterated: "I told you, I need a CT scan and a heparin drip". When the ultrasound didn't show anything, the doctors finally sent her for a CT scan - which showed that several clots had formed in her lungs. "Williams" physical instincts were correct.

What followed was a traumatic six-day a pulmonary embolism (when arteries in the lungs become blocked by a blood clot) that led to multiple surgeries and complications. She quickly anxious that she was getting blood clots in her lungs, and told the medical staff about her symptoms and concerns. The medical ordeal combined with new motherhood temporarily overwhelmed Williams. "I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian, who married Williams in November, told Vogue, adding that the hardest part was "not being able to help". And once she began recovering, she said she found out just how challenging motherhood can be. It is not an exaggeration to state that if Williams hadn't been famous, and especially if she were in a hospital in the inner city or a rural area, she may never have returned home with her daughter.

Serena Williams opens up about her life-threatening health complications after emergency C-section

As one woman said on Twitter, "Stand your ground, because you just might save your own life". "No one talks about the low moments ―the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry". 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".

The Danish former world number one lost in the Auckland Classic final on Sunday to Germany's Julia Goerges but said she felt great heading to Melbourne as she too looks to make her Slam breakthrough. Not only is she gearing up to play competitively again (despite choosing to skip this year's Australian Open noting that she doesn't feel "prepared to go all the way"), but many of her tennis friends have been incredibly supportive in wishing her a speedy recovery and seeing her back on tour.

Despite her self doubts, and her serious medical complications, Serena and Alexis are considering more children, yet say they "are in no rush".
