How is cholestasis of pregnancy treated?
A medication called ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) is commonly prescribed to improve the flow of bile and liver function. It can help to reduce itching. Women with cholestasis of pregnancy will often be monitored more closely during pregnancy because the condition can slightly increase the risk of serious complications to the baby, such as stillbirth.
