Pregnant Women At A Greater Risk of Serious Auto Accident

Researches studied more than 500,000 women before, during, and after pregnancy.  The study was to determine if certain sypmtoms of pregnancy including nausea and fatigue played a role in increased auto accidents. 

The study did not determine the cause of the increase in car accidents among pregnant women but it did determine that among the participants the greatest risk of a serious accident occured during the 2nd trimester.  

Though the study did not determine an exact cause for the increased risk of a serious car accident, it is important for everyone, including moms-to-be to reduce distractions when driving, to avoid driving when drousy, and to always wear a seatbelt.
