Pregnant women should wear seat belts

Some pregnant women worry that wearing a seat belt in a car may hurt the fetus. But a new U.S. study shows that the opposite is true. 1f you don’t wear a seat belt, pregnant women are more likely to be injured in car accidents and even lead to fetal death. The study was published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and gynecology< Not all pregnant women are willing to wear seat belts, which is what researchers are worried about, said Haywood brown, a professor of Obstetrics and gynecology at Duke University Medical Center who led the study brown and his colleagues surveyed 126 pregnant women who were treated in Duke University Hospital during 1994-2000. These women are in the second or third trimester of pregnancy. Among the 86 pregnant women who wore seat belts at the time of the accident, the fetal mortality rate was 3.5%, while among the 12 pregnant women who did not wear seat belts, the fetal mortality rate reached 25% the survey also found that most pregnant women who do not wear seat belts are new mothers, but mothers with children often take the initiative to wear seat belts for their children Brown said that since the safety belt can reduce the injury to pregnant women and fetuses in traffic accidents, pregnant women should wear the safety belt. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends that pregnant women should always wear seat belts.
