Yes, many doctors recommend 81 mg of aspirin because it prevents clots which can cause miscarriage especially if you have already experienced one.
There is no evidence that aspirin causes birth defects in humans, only in test animals. These risks only happen in normal adult dosages(325 mg), not the low dose 81 mg. commonly you stop taking the dosage at 12 weeks although some women take it as long as 5-6 months. However, if you deliver your baby while taking aspirin, there is a proven risk of abnormal bleeding..
