At Safe Ride 4 Kids we recommend that people follow their conscience in such matters. We know that parents are going to get the full spectrum of opinions and information from people who care about them and want to help them make a “good” decision. Some of this input is valid and some is not, but only the parent can synthesize it all and make their own decisions about what is best for their family.
Ultimately healthcare providers, like anyone in a position of authority, can be held liable for the advice and recommendations they provide and will usually recommend against something they are unfamiliar with. While we understand a doctor or healthcare provider’s hesitancy to endorse, recommend or advise the use of any aftermarket product, especially one they have never heard of and/or don’t know all the details about, we believe that it is each individuals responsibility and right to seek out information and options, then make their own informed decisions.
Healthcare providers are extremely busy and likely find it difficult, if not impossible, to be up to speed on the latest advances in technology outside their field of expertise. Because of this reality, we also believe that it is important that we all share new information with our healthcare providers.
At Safe Ride 4 Kids we strive to provide as much information as we can and to make the education process informative and as succinct as we can. Download our Tummy Shield Report to share with your healthcare provider. This describes how the Tummy Shield is the solution, protecting babies from traumatic injuries and deaths, to the dangers of driving while pregnant. Of course you can also direct them to our website especially the Studies & News Stories page.
