I'm not sure. I know that they checked my platelets before giving me the epidural for the c-section, but I wasn't clear if it was only because I'd been on heparin until a few days before, or if the LDA was an issue as well. I think I remember reading on the forums (may want to do searches in older posts) about someone being advised to stop LDA before delivery. I was advised to stay on LDA up through delivery. My OB also advised I'd probably need to stay on it for life b/c of my clotting disorder.
