The births of my children brought me both joy and sadness. My two sons, Alex and Tim were the best thing that ever happened to me and my two daughters, Victoria and Olivia, were the worst things to happen. 

When Victoria was stillborn I always said that if it happened again I would shoot myself. Well it did happen again but I'm still (thankfully) here. I have my son Alex to thank for giving me joy again after Victoria died and he was the reason I had to get up in the mornings when Olivia was stillborn. I always say that Tim's arrival gave me back the ability to feel complete joy in life again, something that I thought I would never do. 

When I was finally given the diagnosis of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), which is the most common pregnancy-specific liver condition, my way of coping was to throw myself into raising awareness of the condition and it grew from there .

Next year I will be 60 and I want to use the time from now until then doing something positive and fundraising seemed an appropriate thing to do.  I'd love to raise £60,000 for research into ICP and part-fund the very first ICP Support PhD student!


Event details

Counting Down to 60

The first challenge is to lose weight for my proposed hip replacement which will be sometime later this year. I have never publicly spoken about my challenges with weight but I am your classic yo-yo dieter and I’m currently carrying around 40lb too much. When I was told about the hip replacement I knew I needed to do something so at the end of June 2017 I joined Slimming World online and with the support of a good friend and my husband I am starting to lose weight. If you want to sponsor me with my weight challenge please do – I’ll announce my weight loss every week (find me on Twitter @icpjenny) Instagram - icpjenny or my blog

I’ll be thinking about what else I can do to fundraise and if you have any ideas about what you’d sponsor me to do then let me know at

Your donation will be used to part-fund the first ICP Support PhD student (typical cost is £100,000) to help the charity achieve its aims and vision that every ICP baby is born safely. 

Jenny, Founder & CEO ICP Support
