Aspirin May Prevent Deadly Pregnancy Complication

New study recommends it for high-risk women.
A federal panel is recommending a daily low-dose aspirin for pregnant women at high risk for pre-eclampsia.

Pre-eclampsia involves dangerously high blood pressure and protein in the urine and is a leading cause of deaths in pregnant women.

A  review by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force shows that when women at high risk of the condition take a low-dose aspirin every day after the first trimester it  can lower their risk of developing pre-eclampsia by 24-percent.
