Do I have to wear a seatbelt when I'm pregnant
Yes! Doctors recommend it. A seatbelt is the best protection in case of an accident, both for you and your child.
And if the car has airbags?
Then you still have to wear your seatbelt. Airbags are designed to work in conjuction with seatbelts, and are no substitute for them. Airbags with no seatbelts worn can be very dangerous.
Do I need to adjust the position of my seat?
Yes, move the seat as far back as possible. Your chest should be at least 10 inches (25cm) from the steering wheel or dashboard. Move the chair as far back as you can without compromising your driving skill.
Should I disable the airbag?
No. The combination of seatbelt and airbag provides optimal protection for you and your baby.
