Seat Belts During Pregnancy
A properly worn seat belt will reduce the risk of injury to both mother and unborn baby in a crash. The seat belt should be worn so that the shoulder part of the seat belt passes between the breasts and between the shoulder and neck while the lap part of the seat belt is as low as possible, touching the thighs and laying across the pelvis. The shoulder part of the seat belt should never be put behind the back or under the arm.
An air bag is the most effective when it is used with a seat belt. It is not meant to replace a seat belt. If there is an on/off switch for the air bag, it should be left on to provide the best protection for both mother and baby.

When driving, the seat should be back as far as possible while still letting the driver reach the pedals. Ideally, there should be at least 28 cm (11 inches) between the steering wheel and the breastbone. When in the passenger seat, the seat should be moved back as far as possible.
