Aspirin may protect against dangerous pregnancy complication

A daily low dose of aspirin may protect against Preeclampsia in pregnant women.

Preeclampsia is a potentially dangerous complication that can threaten a mom's health and cause preterm birth.

Researchers found high-risk women who took a daily low dose of aspirin after their first trimester were 24 percent less likely to develop Preeclampsia than women who did not take aspirin.

Their risk of preterm birth also dropped by 14 percent.
