Best Cholestasis Birth Injury Attorneys – Get Legal Help Here
Pregnancy brings with it a unique set of challenges which must be mitigated in a timely fashion. Prenatal visits to the doctor by a pregnant mother are meant to make sure that the pregnancy is going on as it should, as well as meant to check for any abnormalities, infections and illnesses that may negatively impair the development of the baby in utero. One such illness is called cholestasis of pregnancy, and it is often seen in the second and third trimesters. One of the hallmarks of cholestasis is extreme itching due to the buildup of bile in the blood and skin, and it can be dangerous if left untreated as the bile may cross into the baby, causing complications we’ll take a look at later in this post.

Cholestasis of pregnancy is a liver disease that is thought to be due to elevated levels of bile, or the compound that is responsible for the breakdown and digestion of food. Cholestasis is more common in some nationalities and ethnicities such as Scandinavians, Indians, Chileans and Pakistanis, and it is surmised to be due to an increase in hormone levels. In addition, individuals who have suffered liver damage, those carrying twins and prior smokers and heavy drinkers may be at an increased risk for cholestasis.
Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with cholestasis:
- Light colored stools
- Urine that is darker than normal
- Poor or loss of appetite
- Intense itching
- Yellowing of the skin and eyes, known as jaundice
- Vomiting and nausea
- Pain just below one’s right ribcage.
Will Cholestasis Harm My Baby?
Cholestasis is very dangerous for the unborn baby as increased bile levels in their bloodstream can make it more likely for them to develop birth injuries due to increased liver strain as it struggles to get rid of the excess bile. Babies born to mothers with undiagnosed and untreated cholestasis may be at an increased risk of develop hypoxic-ischemic injury, which in turn kills of brain cells, resulting in cerebral palsy, development delays and lung damage.
