Protect Your Unborn Baby!

The Tummy Shield™ is the ONLY pregnancy seat belt that actually protects baby in the event of a crash by effectively redirecting the seat belt away from the pregnant belly, thanks to our:

  • Patented design that secures the seat belt at the leg, not the belly or hips where it can crush your unborn baby
  • Stainless steel hook construction that attaches securely to the car seat and holds the belt firmly in place, without any slippage or dangerous slack
  • Hundreds of successful crash tests show the seatbelt continues to comply with current safety standards.

DO PREGNANT WOMEN REALLY NEED A SPECIAL SEAT BELT?

In a word, YES. More than 170,000 pregnant women are involved in car accidents every year, resulting in thousands of lost pregnancies or injuries to the baby. Some of the injuries can cause pregnancy complications which can be life-threatening to the mom-to-be.  You see, the existing seat belt system was not designed or tested to protect women who are driving while pregnant; in fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the current seat belt system exposes an inherent risk for injury, or even death, to an unborn baby.

This is because the standard seat belt is designed to secure an occupant in the car seat by engaging the hip bones. However, beginning at the start of the second trimester, your unborn baby moves above and in front of your hip bones—directly beneath the seat belt. When engaged by an accident, or even a sudden stop, the belt compresses with extreme speed and force, violently displacing and even crushing your unborn baby.

HOW DOES THE TUMMY SHIELD PROTECT MY UNBORN BABY?

The Tummy Shield’s specially-engineered, single-piece assembly could one day save the life of your unborn child or protect your baby from a severe brain or spinal injury. Our patented design secures the seat belt at the leg, not the belly or hips where it can crush your unborn baby. Stainless steel construction ensures the Tummy Shield will not crack or break upon impact and our patented hook design prevents slippage and slack in the belt, ensuring the belt stays in place to protect both the driver and the baby in the event of a car accident while pregnant.

Pregnant drivers and passengers simply place The Tummy Shield on the car seat, wrap the attached belt around the seat, and secure it with the buckle. When seated, buckle the seat as usual, pull the lap portion down and insert into Tummy Shield anchor, then pull the seat belt snug.

Plus, The Tummy Shield eliminates the pain and discomfort of the standard seat belt by eliminating the pressure on your pregnant belly and, unlike a curled towel, pillow, knee, or hand placed between you and your seat belt – or not wearing the seat belt at all which is never a safe solution, it’s safe. Protect the life of your unborn child with The Tummy Shield!
