Serena Williams Gets “Emotional” Over Ending This Bonding Experience With Daughter, Alexis

Published

on

Serena Williams, like many moms, is having a hard time with the idea of letting go of breastfeeding.

The tennis professional took to Twitter on Wednesday to ask “fellow moms” a few questions and concerns she has about her 3-month-old baby girl. First she wondered, “How long did you breastfeed?”

The newlywed then launched into whether or not it’s “weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it’s time to stop?”

Williams was hit with a slew of responses from her number one fans, many with different ideas on when to stop. One commenter said 3.5 years of age. Others suggested Williams go until her baby girl is 2, and many commented that she will just “know” when to stop.

Williams is not the only celebrity mom to speak out about breast feeding.

Prior to giving birth to her now one year old daughter, Dream Kardashian, Blac Chyna was adamant about how she wanted to nourish her child. “Maybe [it’s] my motherly instinct. Just reading and knowing the pros of breastfeeding for your baby, and just recently I found out some new, cool stuff about not cutting the cord and sending your placenta, you can get these pills to take them after to make you and the baby healthy,” she said on Amber Rose’s LoveLine at the time.

Several stars have even shared the natural part of motherhood on social media. Click here to see what stars shave posted photos of them breastfeeding their child.

Serena Williams Almost Died During Child Birth – 3 Shocking Details Behind Tennis Pro’s Complications

Serena Williams gave birth to a healthy baby girl on September 1, 2017 and is now a happy mother to a perfect bundle of joy. But what fans didn’t know was that the tennis superstar almost died during child birth.

In an op-ed piece for CNN, the mother of one opened up about complications she had while delivering her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Here are three shocking details the athlete is now unveiling.

1. According to Williams, she had an emergency C-section after the baby’s heart rate dropped dramatically during contractions. “It began with a pulmonary embolism, which is a condition in which one or more arteries in the lungs becomes blocked by a blood clot,” Williams wrote. “This sparked a slew of health complications that I am lucky to have survived.”

2. “My C-section wound popped open due to the intense coughing I endured as a result of the embolism. I returned to surgery, where the doctors found a large hematoma, a swelling of clotted blood, in my abdomen. And then I returned to the operating room for a procedure that prevents clots from traveling to my lungs.”

3. When Serena “finally made it home to my family, I had to spend the first six weeks of motherhood in bed.”

In the article posted on CNN’s website, Williams opened up about studies that prove “Black women in the United States are over three times more likely to die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes.”
