Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful periods of life for every women. Also, it can be stressful and difficult period, which requires special care for both, her baby and herself. However, sometimes the women ignore or forget some general things during the pregnancy, such as car safety.
The information from The Center For Disease Control and Prevention is frightening – 32,800 pregnant women are injured due to lack of car safety and most of them have lost their babies!
We all can agree that car safety is very important, especially during pregnancy. Now you can learn how to protect your baby:
According to the National Highway Safety Admin, most of the pregnant women are using their seat belt wrong, which can be dangerous for their babies.
The belt must be worn across the chest and the lab belt should be placed under the belly. You shouldn’t place your belt across the belly, because it can harm the baby.
You should avoid driving while you are pregnant, because in most cases the belly is big enough so there is very little gap between the belly and the steering wheel. In such a case, even a small crush can be dangerous for your baby, because the steering wheel can rush into your belly.
Don’t lean forward:
While you are travelling you should always wear your seat belt. When you have your belt on, you won’t lean forward in case of crush. Leaning forward can make excessive pressure in your belly that can harm the baby.
