Itching to run
Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), or obstetric cholestasis, is a serious liver condition in pregnant women. At its worst, ICP can potentially cause fetal distress and still birth. One of the main symptoms is itching on your hands and feet, especially at night time.
I was diagnosed with ICP in both my pregnancies but thankfully they were managed well and Juliette and Raphaël arrived safely after early inductions (the recommended course of treatment).
Earlier this year my sister Susie was also diagnosed with ICP during her pregnancy. Her little girl Beatrice also made a safe arrival.
Both Susie and I benefited from the amazing advice and information offered by ICP Support - the only charity in the UK that helps women with this condition.
Please donate to help fund their research into the causes of and treatment for ICP, and to support their website and helpline.
