Royal Az –  Meghan Markle Just Pulled Her Most Mom-to-Be Pose Yet: ‘I Feel the Embryonic Kicking of

 Meghan Markle is feeling the “kick” of feminism!  The Duchess of Sussex has been known for cradling her baby bump throughout her pregnancy, but she took the move to a new level at her International Women’s Day panel on Friday while posing for a group photo with singer Annie Lennox, model Adwoa Aboah, former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, journalist Anne McElvoy, Camfed Regional Director Zimbabwe’s Angeline Murimirwa and British campaigner Chrisann Jarrett Get push notifications with news, features and more.

It’s funny, I’ve actually been joking in the past few weeks…I had seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism and one of the things they said during pregnancy is, ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism ’ “  The crowd laughed as Meghan continued: “I loved that, so boy or girl, or whatever it is, we hope that’s the case ”  Meghan kept her hands close to her belly during the panel, at times resting them on her bump over her black-and-white swirl-printed shift dress with a high collar from the U K. high street brand Reiss.  The royal mom-to-be, 37, showed off her double bump hold during her surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards in December She placed her hands over her one-shoulder Givenchy black dress while honor her wedding dress designer – Clare Waight Keller, artistic director of Givenchy – with the British Womenswear Designer of the Year award  “I think it shows that she really cares for her baby, and that’s terrific,” Mary Jane Minkin, an obstetrician gynecologist who teaches at Yale University and is part of PEOPLE’s Health Squad, previously told PEOPLE of Meghan’s go-to move  However, the notion that “bump cradling” is medically beneficial to the child — leading to speculation that Meghan is holding her belly for that reason — is not evidence-based  “There really isn’t a lot of data showing that touching the belly really calms the baby,” Dr Minkin says.  Georgia Rose of Village Maternity in New York City, a midwife who had her own practice for over two decades and also taught at her alma mater, Columbia University, added that moms-to-be touching their bellies is a “beautiful thing ”  She notes that studies have shown that babies respond to their mother’s voice while in the womb, and it’s likely that they also acknowledge touch  Rose also proposes that Meghan may be cradling her stomach unconsciously, just as a mother may pat her child’s head or squeeze their hand while focusing on another task  “This is a totally normal thing that mothers do, and they do it instinctively and naturally,” she explains

  1. I wonder if Julia Gillard was repeating the words, 'Gonski report, Naplan, Gonski report, Naplan, like she did when she was our 'Prime minister….

  2. I consistently rub my belly, talk and sang to my baby 👶. My doctor told me my baby can feel my touch at least eight weeks after conception. So Meghan touch on….

  3. I spoke to and touched my unborm baby in the privacy of my home. When out in public she would kick play soccer and do what felt like somersaults i would fine some where quiet to sit until she calmed dowm. Ibe never seem mm loook umcomfortable at all amd most bubs are quite active in last couple months or am i odd one out

  4. She knows what she's doing, she also knows that it gets on everyone's nerves to watch a middle aged lady behave in such a manner. It's embarrassing.
