Expectant mother: driver or passenger?

Expectant mother: driver or passenger?

On the one hand, driving behind a wheel of your own car is much more pleasant than using public transport. On the other hand, no one has canceled traffic jams, searches for parking lots, road accidents and communication with representatives of road services. A trip by car at rush hour may cost the future mother a lot of nerve cells; At the same time, the prospect of stagnation and stuffiness in a bus or subway cannot be called pleasant.

But if in a crowd a pregnant woman is noticed and missed, then on the road she will be treated without condescension. The pros and cons list can be continued for a long time, because each of the ways of moving in space has its pros and cons. There is only one win-win option – to drive in a car as a passenger, only it is not available to everyone.

And because the final decision remains for the woman herself – though, accepting it, it is worthwhile to listen not only to yourself, but also to the opinion of the attending physician.

There are a number of situations where doctors do not advise expectant mothers to drive. The “claims” of obstetricians to driving are associated with two things. First, with the need for a long time to sit still.

This is fraught with stagnation of blood in the pelvic organs and legs, which is completely unacceptable with hemorrhoids or varicose veins, often occurring in expectant mothers. In the latter case, in addition, there is a risk of convulsions of the gastrocnemius muscles (and one can only hope that they will not arise somewhere on the highway).

And if in a passenger seat a woman manages to settle reclining, raising her legs, and in public transport, get up and move, then there will be few opportunities for warming up at the wheel of a warm-up. Long sitting in one position is also dangerous because it can increase the tone of the uterus.

This is extremely dangerous in case of threatened abortion or premature birth. If such a risk exists and the expectant mother is recommended maximum peace, but to get from point A to point B is still necessary – it is better to sit in the back seat reclining, giving the driver’s seat to someone else.

The second problem associated with driving – increased nervous tension. In the metropolis, it can not be avoided even by an experienced and balanced car.

Moreover, the road inevitably requires increased attention concentration and eye strain. In future mothers, whose nervous and hormonal system is unstable due to physiology, this load, which is imperceptible at the usual time, can easily lead to the development of headaches, bouts of dizziness, and an increase in blood pressure. And such phenomena, even if they appeared only a couple of times, are a serious reason to refuse driving.

To interrupt personal trips, doctors also advise excessively emotional ladies or not-too-experienced “drivers”, for whom every trip behind the wheel becomes stressful. And this decision should be absolutely unequivocal for women with toxicosis, hypertension, gestosis, vegetative-vascular dystonia.

If other passengers will help a woman who feels bad in public transport, you have to rely only on yourself on the road. And waiting for the baby driving is permissible only if it brings more pluses than minuses.

Another absolute contraindication for driving is the onset of labor. And although some mothers bravely come to the hospital themselves, to repeat such feats is dangerous.

Even if you feel normal, painful contractions or rupture of the amniotic fluid can begin at any time. Ask someone from your loved ones to take you or call an ambulance.

Expectant mother: driver or passenger?

Traffic jam at rush hour, horn noise, constant stress – all this undermines the future mom’s emotional health. Be calm – the road is always supervised thanks to the City Safety system.

Optical radar under the windshield monitors the situation ahead, and will warn the driver at speeds up to 50 km / h about a possible collision. If circumstances require an immediate response, the system itself will apply a brake and prevent a collision or significantly reduce the negative consequences of an accident.
