Serena Williams & Daughter Cover Vogue Magazine | Reveals Her Harrowing Medical Ordeal After Delivery

Tennis star, Serena Williams and daughter Alexis Olympia are the cover stars for the February 2018 issue of Vogue magazine and we can’t get over how cute the mother-daughter duo look.

In her new cover story for Vogue, the first time mum revealed that she suffered two months of complications after giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Jr., last September.

The 36-year-old tennis pro said that she had an easy pregnancy, but had to undergo an emergency C-section due to her baby girl’s low heart rate during contractions.

The next day, Williams felt short of breath and assumed she was having a pulmonary embolism because of her history with blood clots.

She underwent a CT scan and several small clots were found in her lungs.

“I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!” she recalled telling the medical team.

The six days that followed were even more harrowing. Williams’ C-section wound popped open and doctors found that a large hematoma had flooded her abdomen.
