Health Tip: Wear Your Seat Belt During Pregnancy

And watch where you sit

(HealthDay News) -- Wearing a seat belt is particularly important during pregnancy, when you're protecting for two.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions for moms-to-be while traveling in the car:

  • Wear your seat belt properly, with the lap belt beneath your belly and the shoulder strap positioned between the breasts and to the side of the belly.
  • Move your seat back as far as possible if you have airbags. Tilt the seat to give your belly more space.
  • If you aren't driving, sit in the back seat.
  • Always see your doctor immediately after a car accident, even if you don't feel like you are hurt.
