Intake of omega 3 supplements is recommended in pregnancy to help in good progress of the pregnancy. Ecosprin contains the drug acetyl-salicylic acid while omega 3 supplements are nutritional supplements. you may take both of them as the function is a little different. Ecosprin helps in preventing uterine irritability and improves perfusion while omega 3 help to relax the uterus, prevent neurosensory defects in the baby and aid in good brain development of the baby. You may consult your doctor for further suggestions. Good luck.
