Monifa Bandele, vice president and chief partnership and equity officer at MomsRising, a political organization that works to end discrimination against mothers and women, says said that she appreciates Serena Williams for opening up about her experience, which has drawn more attention to this issue.

A less talked about reason why the disparity exists is the implicit bias medical professionals may have toward Black women and how to best handle their treatment.

Williams told Vogue she had an emergency caesarean section after the baby's heart rate plummeted during contractions. Thankfully, the surgery was successful and a attractive, healthy baby emerged. The surgery went off without a hitch; Alexis cut the cord, and the wailing newborn fell silent the moment she was laid on her mother's chest.

The surgery went well, but Williams, who has a history of blood clots, had complications. But Serena insisted, and soon enough a doctor was performing an ultrasound of her legs. Coughing from the embolism caused her incision to open up. It is not an exaggeration to state that if Williams hadn't been famous, and especially if she were in a hospital in the inner city or a rural area, she may never have returned home with her daughter.

"I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian explained to Vogue. "Consider for a moment that your body is one of the greatest things on this planet, and you're trapped in it".

Kenyatta wishes Ramaphosa, new ANC NEC well
Kenyatta expressed that he will be interested in talking about both politics and business with President Zuma. A flight carrying the President left Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) moments before noon.

"We have nobody who has taken the bull by the horns, since Serena has been out of the game, started her own dominance", twice Australian Open champion Chris Evert, a commentator for ESPN at the Open, said.

She said: "That was an awesome feeling (being handed her daughter). 'I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!'" It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. "(The) incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry ...

Halep's rise to the summit came despite the Romanian failing to break her grand-slam duck.

Serena Williams played an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi in late December but pulled out of this month's Australian Open.

"To be honest, there's something really attractive about the idea of moving to San Francisco and just being a mom", she told Vogue.

United States stocks finish at all-time highs anew
Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.17-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.54-to-1 ratio favored advancers. Stocks roared to another day of record highs, climbing steadily through the day and finishing near session highs.

"I absolutely want more grand slams". Williams now has 23, but she is aware of what's in the record books and wants to win 25.

"It's not a secret that I have my sights on 25", said the 36-year-old Williams. "I say this without a lot of conviction, but I feel like Halep had such a disappointing 2017 in the Majors, and I feel she is determined to turn that around", Evert informed. 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?' The emotions are insane".

Williams told Vogue that she instructed doctors to give her a CT scan and a heparin (an anticoagulant medication) drip.

"It doesn't have quite the same intensity as maybe the French Open, Wimbledon or the U.S. She's a candidate, everybody is saying her draw is not the easiest, but I feel like if Halep is playing well, she will have a similar chance to Wozniacki".
