The Birth of Car Safety Device for Pregnant Moms
The Revolutionary Next-Generation Car Safety Device for Pregnant Moms
Your baby is generally well-protected inside your belly. However, driving or riding in a car is a different story altogether.
A seat belt is designed to engage with the iliac crest of the pelvic bone. By 12 weeks gestation the pregnancy has moved out in front of the protection of pelvic bone structure.
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 sudden stop!
But it didn’t just happen by chance.
This next-generation car safety device for pregnant moms 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. His wife sustained only minor bruising about her tummy area from contact with the seat belt compressing across her abdomen. She worried about the health of her unborn baby but everything seemed to be progressing normally.
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.
Doctors Confirmed Their Worst Nightmare
Their daughter had sustained a brain injury sometime during the pregnancy. An injury that would come to affect her and the whole family for the rest of her life.
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 incident – not even a crash!
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! At first is was just the steel plate and anchor but his wife asked for some cushion. George added the foam.
Done having kids, George shelved the Tummy Shield concept, waiting for someone else to develop a car safety device for pregnant moms while he focused on his family and his business.
After years had gone by, no one had come up with another solution. He developed and tested and patented the Tummy Shield. In 2008 he brought the Tummy Shield to market in Australia, hoping to save other families the distress of their unborn child being injured or losing a pregnancy.
