Use safety belts in the car is required. And pregnant women are no exception. It is true that there is to know how to put it to not be uncomfortable for the mother or the baby but always always wear.

The seat belt during pregnancy

How should we put it?

The safety belt must place below the abdomen so that the mother is most comfortable and that, in case of accident, this did not cause injury to the fetus. But calm, remember moms that the fetus is protected by the "buffer" which is the amniotic fluid.

Some guidelines to put on seat belt:

1. Always use the lower belt, hip, and the belt cross the shoulder.

2. Fasten lower strap below the abdomen, as mentioned above, and above the hip.

3. Never place the belt on the lower abdomen.

4. Place the shoulder strap between the breasts and to the side of the abdomen.

5. Never place the shoulder strap under your arm.

6. Make sure the seat belt is tight.

What should I do if I have an accident?

If you have an accident, however slight, should go immediately to a medical center where they will do an exhaustive study and complete control to verify that, indeed, the baby is in perfect health.
