Polish law releases women in advanced pregnancy from the obligation to wear a seat belt. And although doctors, car manufacturers, instructors and specialists have been fighting for years with the myths about the harmful effects of fastening seat belts, many women still use the permission for this "ride without a handle". Why are they doing this?

Because uncomfortable ...

In fact, the lanes limit the freedom of movement to some extent. This applies to everyone, not just pregnant women. Is "uncomfortable" reason enough to risk your life and health?

If your answer is YES, I will ask one more question: is "uncomfortable" reason enough to risk the life and health of your unborn child?

Because dangerous ...

Many women say that the fastened seat belts compress the abdomen / child, leading to hypoxia. No studies have confirmed this theory. According to obstetricians and gynecologists, a correctly fastened seat belt is not dangerous for a child.

Because sometimes belts work against you ...

In a fraction of car accidents, the passenger lives thanks to the lack of seat belt fastening. This is possible if during a collision it falls through the windshield before the car turns into a sliced, crushed can. Of course, the passenger lives during the flight, the fact that he survives the whole event is determined by what he will fall on. Unfortunately, inflatable mattresses or haystacks are rarely found on the roads. Falling usually results in death, although, as it was said, miraculously saved lucky people happen. It is said then that the belts kill because a person trapped in a completely crushed car would have no chance. This is true, but we must remember that these types of accidents are extremely rare. Catapulting through the glass happens incomparably more often, during accidents and collisions in which the car is not completely removed. Now think: have you ever heard that a pregnant woman and her child survive such catapulting? It is practically impossible. A fastened belt gives a chance - sometimes very high.

Because I drive carefully ...

You. What about other traffic participants? How can you be sure that your car will not be hit by a road pirate? How do you know that within a forest road a wild animal will not run under your wheels?

Your safety is the most important thing

The life of the unborn child lasts as long as the mother lives. Focusing on your safety, you do the best for your child. An unfastened belt exposes you to serious injuries, even with minor injury or sudden braking. When impacted at a speed of 50 km / h, the human body accumulates kinetic energy comparable to impact on the ground after falling from the third floor. With such power you will hit the steering wheel or dashboard without the belts fastened. Belly. An airbag will also hurt you - without wearing a seat belt, it is deadly to everyone - not just pregnant. The only question is - who of us drives at such speed? For comparison - the collision at 110 km / h can be compared with ... a jump from the Statue of Liberty.

Correctly fastened belts during pregnancy - or how?

  • The lap belt should be fastened over your thighs so that it sits flat just under your stomach.
  • The chest belt should be between the breasts.
  • The belt should be properly tensioned.
  • Before traveling, remove the thick outer cover so that the belt can adhere smoothly to your body. If the hip belt is uncomfortable for you, you can buy a special belt adapter.
  • So stop the excuses!

Most often, women who do not fasten them every day give up the belt when they are pregnant. Uncomfortable, because they don't want to, because they are brave. Imaginative people exist and existed like the world, the world. Don't feed them. Remember - the more serious a mother's injury, the less likely her child will survive. Remember this before you get into the car the next time.
