Serena Williams spoke to a crowd in New York about her pregnancy. The American player gave birth to a daughter called Olympia in September 2017. “I met with this company, ‘Mommy and Me’ — which I invested in a while ago — and they are really bringing help and information to moms after they [give] birth", said Williams.
"You get so much information before [having a baby], I was overloaded by what to do — so much so that I was frightened when it came time to give birth. I was like, ‘You know what, I’m just not gonna do it.’ I was late, I was at my dad’s house and I was killing time.
I think I was one of the few people who wanted to keep the baby inside. I was so terrified, but one of the things that this particular company is doing is helping women, so that’s just a touch of what’s in our portfolio … it’s been fun to work on."
In an interview to espnW Williams' husband Alexis Ohanian said: "When my daughter was born, I took [16 weeks] of paternity leave. When you have this very vulnerable newborn there, and you're holding the baby for the first time -- at least for me, it was unnerving. I'm a giant dude holding this little baby, and this is the most important thing I've ever done."
