Hers was a fortunate and healthy pregnancy, by any standard.
And inside the issue, Williams gives details about the emergency C-section she underwent during Alexis' September 1 birth and the medical complications that followed.
The post for Vogue magazine comes after her recent revelation that she was forced to endure multiple surgeries in days after giving birth in their cover story. Her previous blood clot experiences have been equally dramatic.
Those who have C-sections, high blood pressure, and a genetic predisposition to clots are at an even higher risk for developing clots. That time, she did not appreciate the gravity of the matter.

Its size and employment rivals operations of the Detroit Three automakers, but with newer plants and fewer unionized workers. But with USA auto industry sales are declining, the new plant could exacerbate overcapacity and add pressure to cut prices.
Williams, 36, had alluded to "complications" that ensued, but she tells writer Rob Haskell that there were some harrowing moments because she experienced a pulmonary embolism, a recurrence of an issue that left her "on my death bed" in 2011. "I don't need the money or the titles or the prestige". Obeying her request for the scan, the medical team found several small blood clots in her lungs and immediately began the medication.
The ordeal continued for another six days.
First, her C-section wound reopened after a coughing spell caused by the clots in her lungs. The cause: the blood thinner she'd resumed. "She returned yet again to the OR to have a filter inserted into a major vein, to prevent more clots from dislodging and traveling into her lungs", Haskell writes.
Williams said she is ready to get back on the court and is expected to return in March for the BNP Paribas Open, also known as the Indian Wells Masters. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who Williams married in November, told Vogue he was happy to step in and take care of baby duties while Williams rested.

Williams told the magazine she felt depressed sometimes. "The incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry". 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 handsome baby?
"After competing in Abu Dhabi I realized that although I am super close, I'm not where I personally want to be", she said in a statement on Snapchat.
The reigning champ and seven-time victor had hoped to defend her Australian Open title but pulled out following the complications. Her schedule did not permit time for an interview with CNN. "I'm so glad I had a daughter".
"I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!" the tennis star said.
