Is Heparin and Aspirin effective and safe treatments for preventing
PE, and is it safe for my baby. I am having my 4th child, and I am scared? Does extra calcium, magnesium, or Potassium in my diet help? One of my sons is Autistic,and he really needs me !!! Does excersise bring down elevated pressures like with non-pregnancy hypertension ?
Last question, I love seafood like fresh salmon,could the fatty-omega3 help protect my heart and bloodvessels?

There really are no proven dietary changes that are proven to prevent preeclampsia. In addition, heparin and aspirin have not been clearly shown to help. Exercise can help decrease your blood pressure in the long run, but over the short term of pregnancy it really will not help much.
