I was in a car accident while pregnant. What could go wrong mentally or physically if I was wearing my seat-belt and I am not experiencing any pain after the crash? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Numerous things can go wrong mentally and physically, even if you were wearing your seat belt and you initially believe you are okay. Any type of blow to your abdomen, including a tightening seat belt or a deployed airbag can create trauma for your unborn baby. Any of these issues could cause major distress and even induce early labor.
