As I head into next year it’s not about what we can do it’s what we MUST do as working moms and working dads. Anything is possible. I am getting ready for the first match of the year and my dear sweet baby @olympiaohanian was tired and sad and simply needed mama’s love. So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do. My fellow moms and dads working- or stay home it’s equally as intense- but you inspire me. Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This year is to you! What are some things you had to do while working? #thismama #thisdaddy

Williams, 37, said: “It’s not about what we can do, it’s what we MUST do as working moms and working dads”. “Anything is possible. I was getting ready for the first match of the year and my dear sweet baby @olympiaohanian was tired and sad and simply needed mama’s love.”
“So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do. My fellow moms and dads working – or stay home, it’s equally as intense – but you inspire me,” she added. “Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This year is to you!”
Earlier Serena Williams had boldly accepted that she was suffering from “postpartum emotions” and it was hard to cope with the struggles of balancing family, life and tennis. “I read several articles that said postpartum emotions can last up to three years if not dealt with,” she said, NDTV reported.
The 36-year-old American missed most of the 2017 WTA season due to her pregnancy. The tennis ace has earlier spoken about the complications she suffered after giving birth to her daughter. During her pregnancy, she was ranked No 1 in the world and won the Australian Open in her first trimester.
