A safety message for all pregnant ladies- Wearing a seatbelt and how you wear it plays a major role in protecting mum and baby.
Another important consideration is seating position. Ensuring there is a good distance between the pregnant mother's abdomen and the steering wheel is important. It's important to adjust the steering wheel or seat as the pregnancy progresses. Adjusting the seat to maintain a suitable distance from airbags should they deploy is also advised.
Wearing a seatbelt and how you wear it plays a major role in protecting mum and baby. Unbelted women are almost three times more likely to experience the death of a foetus in a crash, compared to belted mothers.
