Tennis Player Serena Williams is celebrated world wide, but not many appreciate the role she plays as a mother and wife when she is away from the field.
She has earlier taken to her social media to address the issue of post natal depression, urging women to find a balance between their babies and their social life.
“Last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk. Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom.
I read several articles that said post-partum emotions can last up to 3 years if not dealt with. I like communication best. Talking things through with my mom, my sisters, my friends let me know that my feelings are totally normal.
It’s totally normal to feel like I’m not doing enough for my baby.”
“We have all been there. I work a lot, I train, and I’m trying to be the best athlete I can be.
However, that means although I have been with her every day of her life, I’m not around as much as I would like to be. Most of you moms deal with the same thing. Whether stay-at-home or working, finding that balance with kids is a true art. You are the true heroes.
I’m here to say: if you are having a rough day or week–it’s ok–I am, too!!! There’s always tomm!”
Below are photos of her and her daughter that prove that even with all the struggles, the stress and baby wails every thing is worth it.
