For women, families and those affected by Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy
Welcome to ICPcare.org formerly known as "Itchy Moms" a resource for those affected by Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy (ICP). Often, the only symptom noticed is itching. The itching can vary from person to person on the palms of hands, arms, legs, soles of feet or all-over itching. ICP carries an increased risk of fetal distress, maternal hemorrhaging, meconium staining, preterm labor and stillbirth (intrauterine fetal demise).
We care about providing useful information to those affected by this high risk pregnancy condition. ICP is a high-risk pregnancy and women diagnosed with a high-risk pregnancy may also need the expert advice and care of a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist or Perinatologist. These specialists are knowledgeable on the proper medical treatments for ICP.

Think you may have ICP?
If you are experiencing itching during pregnancy and think you may have ICP, you can start with our Guide to Diagnosis page. It is a useful reference to help guide you through the process to consider a diagnosis of ICP. Due to the risk of stillbirth, it is essential to seek the proper medical action if you think you may have ICP.
