Because it thins the blood, it increases the risk of bleeding, so your friend's OB probably will want her to discontinue the aspirin before delivery. She should ask her OB when to discontinue.

Amy, it's most often prescribed for thrombophiliacs, I think. Here's a couple links to what our Experts have said about it:

There are more if you search "aspirin"; those were just the ones with the best explanations about any potential effects on the baby. [:)]

Good luck to your friend!

As far as I know it is considered safe. I haven't [yet?] seen any study saying otherwise.

I've taken it for my entire pregnancy with my last 4 kiddos and they have all been fine - very healthy and no problems at all as far as I know.

Baby Aspirin ~ How safe is it???

Postby amyjayne » Thu Apr 17, 2008 12:46 am

Hi there!
I have a mommy friend that was told she has a predisposition for a blood clotting disorder (don't know which one) and her doc prescibed her the baby aspirin to take daily. I know many mommies on here have taken the baby aspirin, unlike me, so I know you have lots more info to help her than I do. She's wondering basically how safe it is during pregnancy and if your babies were fine after taking the aspirin.
Thank you!!!!
Amy :-)
