Pregnancy and car accidents don't mix!

Do I have your attention now? No I was not in a car accident
“Motor vehicle crashes account for four of five deaths that occur among unborn babies of pregnant women who experience trauma.” The Journal of the American Medical Association

“Automobile crashes are the largest single cause of death for pregnant women and the leading cause of traumatic fetal injury mortality in the United States.”U.S. National Library of Medicine
When I was pregnant with Little Man there was no ticketing for not wearing your seat belt. So I would not wear the lap belt just the shoulder belt.

The nice people at Tummy Shield were nice enough to send me a Tummy Shield to review.

This product is wonderful! It makes me feel more safe when buckled up and I know Little Princess will not be injured from the seat belt if I were in a crash.
The Tummy Shield comes in two colors tan and grey which match most car interiors. For those of us who are short it is also nice because it adds a couple inches and you can see better over the steering wheel!

It is SO super easy to install took me less than five minutes!
The Tummy Shield is designed to to reduce the injury of an unborn child and the placenta in the event of an auto accident.

The inventor is an Australian engineer and father of four children. When his wife was in her 7th month of pregnancy. They were in a minor accident. Mom has minor lacerations on her stomach from the accident. They baby was born and at birth everything seemed normal. However after a while and the little girl seemed to not develop mentally and physically. They found she had brain damage. The doctor said it could have happened anytime during pregnancy. Once they told the doctors about the accident the neurologist said this could be a result from the accident. After years of testing and prototypes the Tummy Shield was created.
