    The famous athlete regularly shares the ups and downs of maternity on social media and her followers are often ready and willing to show their support.

    American tennis star Serena Williams has asked her Twitter followers for advice on how to help her baby deal with teething problems.

    The former world number one tennis player gave birth to her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, in September.

    Williams, who has more than 10 million followers, wrote on Monday, that she was "so stressed" and that "it’s breaking my heart."

    ​Williams complained in the post that nothing she had tried, including amber beads and cold towels, helped to soothe her baby.

    ​Her social media followers were quick to react with advice and encouragement.

    ​Since the birth of her daughter, Williams has regularly shared her experiences of maternity on social media. She previously pleaded to her followers for advice on breastfeeding.
