Your Precious Cargo: Why you need to know about the Clippasafe Bump Belt…
The Bump Belt from Clippasafe is a simple yet effective way to protect your unborn baby from the potential danger posed by a seatbelt in the event of a vehicle collision.
You should always wear your seatbelt whilst travelling in a vehicle, even whilst pregnant. But during pregnancy, seat belts can be uncomfortable and can ride up over the bump. In the event of even a minor collision with the seat belt in this position, the effects can be fatal to your baby.
“It’s similar to being struck across the bump with extreme force and pressure. Major injuries can lead to the waters breaking too early. It can also result in placental injuries leading to bleeding and early placental separation, reducing the oxygen supply and in extreme injuries – unfortunately the death of the unborn baby.”
Dr. Karen Joash, Consultant Obstetrician, Portland Hospital London
At Clippasafe, we’re on a mission to educate women about this danger and stop possible tragedies from happening. The Bump Belt is a simple and easy to use product that secures around the lap strap, keeping it in the correct position.
