The stars of the hit TV show “The Doctors” said during a recent broadcast that 87 percent of pregnant women do not wear seatbelts correctly in the car, either because they are uncomfortable or don’t want to harm their unborn babies.
Enter the Pixie Harness, a strange-looking contraption that goes over the shoulders of the mom-to-be and buckles at the top of the belly.
But is such a thing really necessary for pregnant seatbelt safety? The experts on the show recommend that women wear their seatbelts low, underneath the baby bump, during the later stages of pregnancy, which should keep it away from the baby while protecting Mom.
