Are any special tests needed, or can a regular obgyn doctor see me for my intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy?

These pregnancies need to be followed closely since cholestasis of pregnancy is associated with fetal compromise including stillbirth. Serial liver tests & bile acids are checked; non-stress test are recommended 2x/week, and treatment (actigall (ursodiol) 300mg 2x/day) often is beneficial. An OB should be able to manage your care, some refer to mfm. Either should deliver you by 37 weeks if all else is well.
