By Amy NortonHealthDay Reporter MONDAY, May 12, 2014 (HealthDay News) A woman’s risk of having a serious car accident may increase in her second trimester of pregnancy, a. The car crash rate among the women was about the same during the first trimester as it had been before pregnancy, but it rose about 42% during the second trimester—putting the women at. Pregnant women may be at a much higher risk of car crashes than those without babies on board, especially during the second trimester, according to a surprising new study that urges moms-to-be. Concerned about this unstudied risk, Redelmeier began an investigation into the driving records of pregnant women and car accidents, and found that pregnant women are far more likely to be in car accidents, up a staggering 42% when compared to non-pregnant women.

Such is the risk that statistically, 1 in 50 women will be in a car crash during their pregnancy. You’re More Likely to be in a Car Crash. A new Canadian study reveals that a woman is more at risk of being in a serious car accident during her 2nd trimester of pregnancy.

Researchers discovered that compared with pre-pregnancy, a woman’s risk of being in a traffic accident in her second trimester of pregnancy jumped 42 percent. Pregnant women who drive appear to be at a significantly higher risk of being in a serious car crash during the second trimester of their pregnancies, a new study suggests. Expectant mothers are more likely to get into serious car crashes, a study finds. The risk is highest in the second trimester, when accident rates are similar to those for people with sleep apnea. Pregnant woman who are in car accidents are likely to be considered by professionals as a high risk pregnancy.

Even if there are no apparent physical injuries, a sudden and severe stopping motion can be very harmful to a fetus. Pre-term labor is when a pregnant woman goes in to labor before the 37th week of her pregnancy. Researchers from Toronto recently found that women who are in their s econd trimester of pregnancy are significantly more likely to be involved in a car accident that requires medical attention. We blogged about this phenomenon earlier this year.

Women Involved in More Car Accidents. The University of Michigan looked at 6.5 million car crashes that took place between the years of 1998 and 2007. It appears that although men are more likely to cause accidents, women are more likely to be involved somehow, usually as the victim. Therefore, women ended up in more accidents total than men.

Women are more likely to wear their seat belts than are men, but fewer women wear their seat belts when pregnant.6 The major myth concerning seat belt use during pregnancy is that the belt will hurt the unborn child.

Pregnant women in general wear seat belts less frequently than do nonpregnant women owing to discomfort, or the unproven concern that the seat belt may increase damage to the unborn child in the case of a crash.

If a pregnant woman is involved in a motor vehicle crash with an improperly positioned seat belt, the seat belt can cause harm to the woman and fetus because the seat belt compresses the uterus.

The pregnant woman and her fetus are more likely to sustain severe injury or death because of not being restrained during a crash than they are to be injured by the restraint itself.
