Jodie Turner-Smith spent her pregnancy feeling ‘really scared’ because she couldn’t feel movement

Jodie Turner-Smith admits she spent a lot of her pregnancy feeling ‘really scared’ because she didn’t feel her baby move until 22 weeks

Jodie Turner-Smith has admitted that she spent a lot of her pregnancy feeling ‘really scared’ because she didn’t feel her baby move until she was 22 weeks. 

The actress, 34, welcomed her first child, Janie, with her husband Joshua Jackson last April. 

Speaking to Cosmopolitan on Friday, Jodie explained she didn’t feel any movement because of how active she was while shooting the action film Without Remorse.

Jodie revealed: ‘My husband was there for much of the time I was filming. I had a lot of hot baths… We rented an ultrasound machine and I would look at the baby almost every night.     

‘Because of how active I was doing an action film, I didn’t feel any movement until I was about 22 weeks so I spent a lot of time during my pregnancy really scared. 

‘So I needed to look at her to know everything was OK,’ she added.

Jodie said her ‘lack of knowledge’ about the changes a body goes through during pregnancy made the physically demanding role more challenging. 

Last month, The Queen & Slim star told MATCHESFASHION that she wept after Janie was born because she felt a sense of ’emptiness’ in her womb.

Jodie said: ‘I remember feeling my womb for the first time after I gave birth, feeling the emptiness, and I just wept. 

‘Because it’s just as beautiful, as it is bizarre, as it is completely f****** normal and human. 

‘My body has more curves now, more folds, more softness, and all of that is the evidence of my biological powers.

‘I just kind of grow more in awe of that every day,’ she added.

Reflecting on the birthing experience, Jodie reaffirmed how going into labour made her realise how ‘powerful’ women are.

She told Elle: ‘The men think they’re hard-core, but they could never do what they do while also making a baby. They just couldn’t.

‘[Giving birth reaffirmed to me that] patriarchal society really is out here, scamming women into thinking that they’re not supremely powerful beings, because damn, it’s some goddess-level s***.’
