A woman who finally achived her dream of becoming a mother owes it to an aspirin she took every day during her pregancy.

Sarah Broadfield, 34, from Warrington, Cheshire, feared she would never have children after she endured seven failed IVF attempts and two miscarrages over seven years at a financial cost of £15,000.

But when she fell pregnant again she began taking the 2p aspirin each day after doctors said her miscarriages were caused by Antiphospholipid syndrome. Nine monts later her son Alfie was born weighing a healthy 8lbs.
