For women, families and those affected by Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy
Welcome to ICP Care 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, meconium staining, spontaneous preterm labor, respirtory distress and stillbirth.
We care about providing research-based, medical referenced information to those affected by this high risk pregnancy condition. ICP is a high-risk pregnancy and women diagnosed 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. It is important to understand that this condition untreated has the risk of stillbirth as high as 15%.
