Serena Williams Admits: I’m Not a Good Mother

tennis player Serena Williams

Serena Williams, the world’s number one superstar, has revealed her postpartum feelings and difficulties, saying she feels “not a good mother” about 11 months after her first baby.
“It was not easy for me last week,” said Serena, 36, through her account of “Instagram.” I did not only face difficult personal events … but I felt I was not a good mother.

Serena, who has 23 titles in the Grand Slam, dropped to 26th place after almost a complete absence from 2017 due to pregnancy and childbirth, suffered the worst loss of her career in 1995 when she fell last week in the first round of the San Jose tournament against British Johanna Conta 1-6 and 0-6.

“I have read in many articles that postpartum feelings can last for three years unless they are dealt with, I prefer communicating, talking about these things with my mother, my sisters and friends allowed me to understand that what I feel is perfectly normal.”

“It is normal to feel that I do not do enough for my child,” she said. “Despite my presence with her every day of her life, I feel that I am not there as much as I want,” she told the mothers, “you are the real heroines.”

“I’m here to say if you’ve spent a week or a hard day, it’s normal because I’m there, too, there’s always tomorrow.”

In September 2017, Serena set up her first child, Alexis Olympia, and suffered postpartum complications. After recovering from a cesarean section and sealing her wound, he reopened due to severe coughing due to pulmonary embolism.

“I almost died after I had two children,” she said in an interview with CNN.

Serena returned last May to the Grand Slam in Roland Garros, the second Grand Slam tournaments, and wore a black suit covering her whole body.
