Baby’s First Car Seat™ — Did you know thousands of pregnancies are lost every year due to car crashes? For the price of your daily Starbucks or a few relaxing mani/pedis, the Tummy Shield™ could one day save the life of your unborn child or protect your baby from a severe brain or spinal injury.
You heard that right!
You see, it was designed to grab onto or engage the hip bones and secure an occupant in the seat. For the expecting mother prior to the end of her first trimester, this isn’t a big deal. Baby is still pretty well protected down inside your pelvis.
But toward the start of the second trimester, baby moves up… Above and in front of your hip bones. So when you’re driving or riding while in your second and third trimesters, the “lap” part of the seat belt is held out in front of your hip bones.
If suddenly engaged—like in a car crash—the belt will compress with extreme speed and force right through the tummy area, violently displacing your baby.
By that time, the damage is done and CANNOT BE REVERSED!
I was lucky to discover the Tummy Shield at Ali Landry’s event this years, just as I turned 5 months pregnant. I can’t believe I had not encountered this product before, it is simple and so perfect! I love that it allows my growing bump to not feel the pressure of the seat belt, all the while keeping me and baby safe. Comfort and safety make a good combo during pregnancy. It is also very easy to install and take out. Simple as water, and just as important during these precious 9 months.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Pregnant women SHOULD still wear a seat belt for their own safety.
Just understand, with nearly 170,000 pregnant women involved in motor vehicle accidents every year…
Standard seat belt systems simply DO NOT offer adequate protection against serious injury. In fact, expecting moms every year discover the hard way—
You may only get one chance to do it right when it comes to buckling you and your unborn baby in safely.
This is one item that is a must have for all pregnant women. It was such a comfort to know that I did everything in my power to protect my unborn child from injuries if I was in an accident.
Look, your baby is generally well-protected inside your belly. However, driving or riding in a car is a different story altogether.
The Tummy Shield™ gives you the confidence you’re doing everything in your power to protect your precious cargo from injury or death in the event of a car crash or even a suddenstop!
But it didn’t just happen by chance. The Tummy Shield™ was the result of one father’s unfortunate driving experience with his own family.
You see, one day an Australian engineer was traveling in a car with his wife, who was about 7 months pregnant with their first child. With little warning, he swerved sharply to avoid an accident, hit a curb, and came to a sudden stop.
No one appeared to be seriously injured. Yet, his wife sustained minor bruising about her tummy area due to the seat belt violently compressing across her abdomen. Secretly, she worried about the health of her unborn baby.
Even though she carried to full-term, both mom and dad noticed shortly after birth that their daughter failed to progress mentally and physically, appropriate to her age.
Their daughter had sustained a brain injury sometime during the pregnancy. Heartbroken, both mom and dad immediately suspected—even KNEW— It happened because their car’s seat belt system failed to protect their unborn baby during a seemingly minor accident!
Frustrated and angered, they realized they had done everything right. Yet it still wasn’t enough!
Then, pregnant with their second child and worried about a possible repeat, dad searched high and low for a device he could give his wife to better protect their next unborn baby from injury—maybe even death.
One that would remove the dangerous forces of the seat belt away from his wife’s pregnant belly. Only…none could be found.
So, as an engineer, he took matters into his own hands…and the Tummy Shield™ was born!
The doctors stated to that had I NOT been wearing the Tummy Shield it would have been a very different outcome. We go to all extremes to look after safety, our safety, our chilren’s safety, in the car. And looking after our unborn children is no different.
It also eliminates the extreme pain or discomfort you feel in your tummy when constantly fighting your seat belt for better positioning while pregnant. With the Tummy Shield™, there’s no more…
Fact is, it’s tons more comfortable than those inferior pads, pillows, or belts. Something our customers love most about it!

I am just entering my 6th month of pregnancy and am so glad I have it. In the early part of my pregnancy, my tummy wasn’t huge, however it was extremely uncomfortable to have anything pressing on my lower abdomen, so the Tummy Shield was a huge comfort. And now as I continue to grow and feel this little person inside me, I am grateful knowing that I’m keeping him safe. Personally for me, I feel it’s 100% safer than without!

The manufacturer did many rounds of crash testing during development to perfect the engineering and safety results from the Tummy Shield.
The Tummy Shield™ is a specially engineered, patented and tested, single-piece stainless steel assembly (plate and anchor) molded inside a comfortable cushion and cover, which meet non-fl ammability requirements. The entire assembly is restrained with a webbing strap made of the same type of webbing as seat belts (just a smaller version), which wraps the vehicle seat and is secured with a buckle.
