drivingThe question “when should I stop driving” comes up commonly for birth mothers. If you are able to fit in the driver’s seat then you are still able to drive, as long as you don’t have any dizzy spells and the doctor has not requested you stop driving. If you are starting to have a hard time fitting in the driver’s seat try to move the seat back and move the steering wheel up, this will give you more room! If you can still fit you are able to drive up until your delivery day, as long as it is short distances.

It is suggested to not be in the car, let alone drive, for more than an hour late in your pregnancy. If your doctor gives you the okay, it is best to be able to move around often in your seat and be able to get out of the car and walk around every hour or two. You can also do simple stretches while in the car.
