How should pregnant women use the seat belt?
While everyone in the car should buckle up and make sure the seat belt is positioned correctly, pregnant women need to take a couple of additional steps to make sure that the belt fits right. Here’s how:
Buckle the belt.
Make sure the shoulder belt crosses the upper side of the abdomen and then across the chest and over the shoulder.
Make sure the lap belt is positioned over your hips, under your belly.
Pregnant women should sit as upright as possible and as far from the air bag as they comfortably can. Air bag deployment could cause injury if you sit too close.
