After researching and studying the experience of expectant mothers while driving, Ford has come up with tips for men so that they, too, may understand the driving constraints of their partner while driving.

    * Make sure your wife is wearing her seatbelt correctly
    Make sure that the lap belt is positioned below her abdomen, across her hips (not directly over her bump). The shoulder strap should be between her chest.

    * Move her seat back
    Move her seat back to a comfortable distance while still being able to operate the pedals with her arms slightly bent. This will protect her stomach in the event of an airbag deployment.

    * Support her back
    If she has pregnancy-related back pain, place a pillow to support her lower back or use a rolled-up towel.

    * Let her be the passenger
    When possible, ask her to be a passenger. Sitting in the backseat is the safest spot in the car for an expectant mother. If she sits in front, push the seat back as far from her as you can to protect against airbag deployment.
