In brief: 24-48 hrs

Usually all symptoms of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy resolve within 24-48 hrs after delivery, in rare cases sx may continue to up to one week after and may signify retained placenta.
But if you have this condition pregnancy needs to be monitored by obgyn very closely as poor outcomes for the baby are not uncommon if not monitored.
