Serena has been open about her easy pregnancy, and was eight weeks along when she won the Australian Open in January, but has now revealed to Vogue magazine that she had a hard labor and Olympia was born by emergency caesarean section because her "heart rate dove dangerously low during contractions".
She told the publication that the problems began after AlexisOlympia's heart rate started to drop during her delivery and it was decided that the best option would be to have Serena undergo an emergency c-section.
Now, six days after giving birth, Williams had to have a filter inserted in a vein to make sure no more clots broke off and made way to her lungs.
Serena was found to have a pulmonary embolism, and the coughing it caused meant her C-section wound popped open.

She spent an extra week in the hospital following the baby's birth, then was forced to spent the next month and a half in bed. "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 lovely baby?' The emotions are insane", she explained. The emotions are insane'.
The reigning champ and seven-time victor had hoped to defend her Australian Open title but pulled out following the complications. "If there's no clear number one, it's like, yeah, I can get my spot back", she asserts.
'Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can't do this, ' she said.
The Grand Slam tennis champion even channeled her inner Wonder Woman as she had a red cape illustrated on her back as she moved and grooved to the sounds of NERD and Rihanna track Lemon. I don't play to be the second best or the third best.
"I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian said. "I'm well aware of the record books, unfortunately".
