I went for an appointment wi a high risk obgyn today who specializes in preenclampsia and she did support the use of baby aspirin, folic acid, calcium and vitamin D. She told me that there has been recent research to support the use of these "supplements" and that they do decrease your chances of developing preenclampsia again. According to her, they must be taken ASAP after conception. I feel so lucky to have found this doctor since most other studies have been to further the cause of preenclampsia...a diamond in the rough.

I want to be clear though that these supplements/vitamins were recommended for my specific case. Please consult your doctor before taking any drugs/supplements etc.
