Pregnant Women and Seatbelts

A group of researchers led by Dr. Stacie Zelman from Wake Forest University examined a national database of over two million injured patients and found over 2,400 pregnant women injured in car crashes. Women wearing a seat belt, having an air bag or both were significantly less likely to have pregnancy-related complications than women with neither a seat belt nor an air bag. The combination of a seat belt and air bag resulted in the lowest rate of complications.  Their findings:

  1. Women who wear seat belts have the fewest crash related problems.
  2. A combination of seat belt usage and airbags had the lowest rate of crash complications.

The researchers conclude that pregnant women should feel confident about using seat belts – they will help, not hurt, in a crash. Pregnant women should not wear the seat belt above or on their belly. It should be worn below the belly. Position seat belt to provide at least 10 inches of space between you and the airbag. May 16, 2009 by Marijke Durning, RN.

Tips for Driving Pregnant

  1. Do not wear the belt above the belly.  It should be worn below the belly at the hips.
  2. Position your seat so that your body is 10 inches from the airbag.
