Obstetric cholestasis

Published: 08/05/2012

This information is for you if you’ve been disgnosed with obstetric cholestasis or if you have persistent itching in pregnancy. It tells you about:

  • How obstetric cholestasis is diagnosed
  • What extra antenatal care you can expect
  • What this diagnosis may mean for you and your baby
  • What treatments there are

This patient information leaflet was developed by the RCOG Patient Information Committee. It’s based on the RCOG clinical guideline Obstetric Cholestasis, which contains a full list of all the evidence used to develop the guidance.
