The condition brought on some intense coughing spells, one of which cause her C-section wound to come open.
The tennis star gets intimate about recent revelations, discussing the many facets of motherhood, the complications encountered during childbirth, and the goals she's set for her return to the court. "No one talks about the low moments-the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry", she said.
She added: "I was happy to change diapers, but on top of everything she was going through, the feeling of not being able to help made it even harder".
Having experienced the symptoms before, she assumed she was having a pulmonary embolism and demanded the medical team give her a scan and a blood thinner medication. 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.
