Aspirin helps woman have baby after five miscarriages

London, Jan 1 (IANS) A 33-year-old British woman, who suffered five miscarriages in five years, has finally given birth after taking an aspirin a day.

Dawn Paddock gave birth to son Shay in April 2010, and was determined to provide him with a brother or sister, The Sun reported.

She longed to be a mother for the second time but had always struggled to make it past the crucial 12-week mark.

She had suffered two miscarriages before giving birth to her now two-year-old son with engineer husband Christian, 34.

Later when she endured another three failed pregnancies, Dawn remembered how she had taken aspirin while pregnant with Shay.

She took a blood-thinning drug Heparin and an aspirin again and was thrilled when she gave birth to daughter Isobel in July 2012.

Experts finally diagnosed her condition, antiphospholipid syndrome, and told her that aspirin had actually worked.
