Brit woman who gave birth after 5 miscarriages credits ‘miracle’ pill aspirin

s/taking-an-aspirinLondon, Jan 1 : A nurse from Liverpool, who suffered five miscarriages in five years, finally gave birth to a daughter last July, after taking an aspirin a day.

Dawn Paddock, 33, had always struggled to make it past the crucial 12-week mark.

She suffered two miscarriages before giving birth to Shay - now two - and was determined to provide him with a brother or sister but endured the anguish of another three failed pregnancies.

Dawn then remembered how she had taken the off-the-counter drug aspirin while she was pregnant with Shay.

She took it again and was thrilled when she gave birth to daughter Isobel, the Sun reported.

Paddock started taking the aspirin at the start of the pregnancy with Shay after a colleague suggested it. When she made it to 12 weeks, she kept taking the painkillers.

Experts finally diagnosed her condition - antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) - and told her that the "old wives' tale" about aspirin had actually worked. (ANI)
