Driving while pregnant

1 comment

According to AAA, September 12-18 is National Child Passenger Safety Week. AAA passed along some helpful tips for mothers-to-be. First and foremost, seek the advice of a medical professional if you have any questions regarding seatbelt use when pregnant. AAA also suggests the following:

Buckle the lap strap under your belly and across the hip/pelvis.

Never place the belt across your belly. Impact from a crash could cause serious injury.

Never place the shoulder belt behind your back or under your arm.

Never turn off the air bags in your car. Instead, tilt your seat backward and move it as far back as possible from the dashboard or steering wheel.

If you are in a crash, regardless of how mild you may think it is, see your doctor as soon as possible.

Buy the appropriate car seat for your baby prior to your due date.
