The further along in your pregnancy you are, the more cautious you have to be with your driving. For example, plan extra restroom breaks or get a companion to travel with you to ease the pressures of driving in traffic.
Every mom-to-be should be aware of these tips when driving:
Always fasten your seat belt properly and wear it in the correct manner.
Make sure your steering wheel is tilted upward towards your breastbone and not towards your tummy.
Don’t lean forward in the car – always sit with your back against the seat with a minimum amount of slack in your seat belt.
Keep drinking water in your car to make sure you stay well hydrated when driving.
If you suffer from back pains while driving, use a pillow to comfort the small of your back.
Keep natural energy-giving food snacks in your car such as fruit and nuts to keep your energy levels up while driving.
