Obstetric Cholestasis : Itchy Moms

Obstetric cholestasis is a serious condition in which your bile acid levels are so high that they cause extreme itching (that cannot be helped with benadryl, lotions, or other anti-itch remedies) and put the lifeof your baby at risk. There is not much known about this disease, but medication is available to help control the bile acid levels and non-stress tests are performed on a regular basis. If you think you might have this you should learn more about it by visiting the website www.itchymoms.com
