This woman is definitely the ultimate H.O.T.M.O.M.!! There’s been so much attention surrounding Serena Williams’ triumphant return to her career as a tennis player. I’m sure the question had been on people’s minds from the time she announced her pregnancy–will she still be great? There’s no question about her greatness as an athlete but I have to give credit where credit is due.
Whether you have a traumatic experience or not during your pregnancy, many women are faced with the challenges and decisions surrounding becoming a mother. Will my body snap back? Can I physically rise to the challenge? When do I return to work? How long should I stay home? Will I still be able to perform on the level I once did? What if I don’t want to return?😬 And not to mention the emotional journey of leaving a baby to return to work. Some people didn’t understand this mainly because they’ve never experienced a motherhood journey.
From a woman who experienced a traumatic experience during my delivery, I personally believe it was a big deal to for her to quickly return to this level of play after enduring such a traumatic experience. I was really career oriented and had educational goals that I scheduled to complete prior to having a baby and never imagined putting anything on hold. But I was committed to being a mother and viewed life through a different lens once it happened. I remember taking 1 year off before returning to work and then resigned after 30 days when I finally returned to work. Not to mention how my body physically changed, literally!😏🤦
Serena Williams is undoubtedly in greater physical shape than the average mother😉 but mothers can be inspired by her dedication, commitment, drive, and beast mode attitude that it took to get back on top inspite of her challenges. Even though she was already the G.O.A.T., it makes it all even sweeter when you add #motherhood to the resume when you do it!💪😁. Moms Rock! Welcome to the HOTMOMS Life Club Serena!!
