What to Do After a Car Accident While Pregnant


As an expectant mother, it is your life’s purpose to bring your unborn child into the world as safely as possible. Few things are as terrifying to a pregnant woman as those that threaten the well-being of her baby, and any injury that befalls upon a fetus is truly tragic. Unfortunately, the world is full of dangers that threaten to harm your future child. One of the most unavoidable and intimidating hazards are car accidents, which can result in serious complications and are a leading cause of traumatic fetal deaths.

Pregnant women who are involved in an accident have everything on the line, making the settlement process far more stressful and high-stakes than for most car accident victims. With your child’s life and future at risk, you cannot waste any time before seeking prompt medical attention to ensure his or her safety. If you experience any of the following symptoms, go to the hospital immediately:

  1. Contractions
  2. Vaginal bleeding
  3. Severe pain in the abdomen
  4. Your baby is unresponsive

Your actions directly following an accident can define your child’s outcome. No matter the severity or impact of the incident, it is crucial you see a doctor or OB/GYN as the sheer mental anguish and stress from the crash can also severely impact your unborn child. Mothers are generally overly cautious about their children, and we believe that following these instincts after an accident is crucial.
