I took LDA in my most recent pregnancy after having PE twice before. It did not stop PE in my case, and I even developed it earlier (although that's due to carrying twins vs singles). BUT where I am convinced it helped me is that my twins were both normal sized for gestational age where my singles were mildly IUGR. I believe having thinner blood meant more nutrients got to and through the placenta to keep my babies growing. I intend to take it again if I'm blessed with another child.
