(ROCKLEIGH, N.J.) – September 27, 2018 – Volvo Car USA is partnering with Destination Maternity Corporation (NASDAQ: DEST), the world’s largest designer and retailer of maternity apparel, during this year’s Child Passenger Safety Week (September 23-29) to provide critical information on how to drive safely while pregnant and how to properly select and install car seats.
