Without going into specifics, Ms Williams also reveals she had "complications" that required a hospital stay of six days.
"We had a lot of complications but look what we got, we got a baby girl," she says in one clip, holding her daughter.

"Hope she inherited her mum's tennis skills," jokes one person. "Grand slam titles 1. She is already my idol along with her mother," writes another.
"Thank you for sharing these precious moments with us," comments a third YouTuber.
Ms Williams accidentally revealed that she was pregnant on Snapchat. She announced her pregnancy in April. In December, she and Mr Ohanian got engaged. Alexis Jr is her first child.
The first-time mom has vowed to return to defend her Australian Open title next January.
