Serena Williams Opens Up About Her Battle With Postpartum Depression
Serena Williams reveals all.
The tennis superstar confessed:
“Honestly, sometimes I still think I have to deal with it… I think people need to talk about it more because it’s almost like the fourth trimester, it’s part of the pregnancy. I remember one day, I couldn’t find Olympia’s bottle and I got so upset I started crying… because I wanted to be perfect for her.”
While delivering her baby, the athlete had to undergo an emergency cesarean section, and then a surgery to prevent blood clots from traveling to her lungs.
“What I went through was awful. Looking back, I don’t know how I got through it all. I mean I was praying, I know my mom was praying a lot.”
Despite the drama, Williams would love to give her bundle of joy a sister, and then a brother!
“I told [husband] Alexis [Ohanian], I hope it’s another girl. Olympia needs a little sister, and then we can have a boy. I’ve only been around girls my whole life.”
