Cape Town – Actress Jay Anstey has taken to social media to reflect on her weight loss, showing off her body a year after giving birth to her daughter.
The actress, who welcomed her first baby with boyfriend, Sean-Marco, gave birth using the freebirth method in November last year.
Freebirth is the practice of women giving birth at home without a medical professional or midwife, but only surrounded by their family or partner.
Jay went down memory lane, sharing two images, one when she was heavily pregnant in November last year and another one holding her one-year-old daughter.

“I was huge, but zero regrets on eating my way through pregnancy. And here we are today, healthy and happy,” she wrote.
Jay gave details of her free birth experience with only Sean-Marco and her parents by her side in a lengthy Instagram post.
She thanked her boyfriend and parents for their support through out her delivery journey.
“I pushed for three contractions and my incredible partner delivered our darling daughter into the world. His hands were the first to touch her and the only faces she looked upon were those of her family. She cried beautifully, we checked her vitals and she was happy and perfect. Everything I had wanted for her. Her perfect birth,” she said.
Although she ended up having to go to hospital to remove the placenta surgically after it delayed, she said she would consider doing the method all over again, although, she doesn’t judge those who opt a different method.
