Seat Belt Options for Pregnant Women

The Tummy Shield: Ga Ga or Gag?

Buckle up your belly! As pregnant women grow, they find themselves having to adjust their seat belts to alleviate added pressure on their abdomens. An Australian company has developed a device that shifts the restraint while supposedly keeping the baby safe in utero. The Tummy Shield is a cushion placed under the expectant passenger. It has a hook that holds the lap portion of the seat belt under the stomach and around the hips and upper thigh area to protect the tummy from pressure. According to the company, if the car is in an accident, placement of the Tummy Shield will keep the baby safe and reduce injury to the mother. Would you invest in one?
