New mom, Zenande Mfenyana, has clapped back at societal expectations to ‘snap back’ to her pre-pregnancy figure…

The outspoken soapie actress – who confirmed earlier this month that she had given to a baby girl – tweeted a message of self-acceptance, condemning the “snap-back culture” that many new mothers and celebrities face.

She posted: “I’m taking it one day a time with my body. And I certainly will not put myself under unnecessary pressure for the snap-back culture.

“One sit-up a day is better than no sit-ups at all.
