Hi Sangita
Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, some time heparin given to pregnant women for preventing recurrent miscarrige due to antiposholipid syndrom as heperin acts as anticoagulant. so if you had miscarrige then you can take it. this is safe in pregnancy, there is no adverse effect of it on you n fetous. you should take ecosprin also, most common side effect of it is gastric upset n bleeding, bleeding can be prevented by heparin so there is nothing to worry.
