In brief: Strenghten liver

If reason for liver weakaning was hepatitis make sure gets treated( if it was hepatitis b or c) have healthy diet.
If it was, hellp sdr, preeclampsia, fatty liver of pregnancy, there isnt much that can be done, you are at higher risk with the second pregnancy. If it was cholestasis of pregnancy there are some meds outthere that can help release the symptoms, but not progression of disease.Hope it helps.

In brief: OPTIONS

Liver health is a common issue in modern functional medicine which is not merely patented drugs.
It is also an over dose issue. For years we have used nac which is found in the liver to save tylenol (acetaminophen) overdose patients. Cal-d-glucarate helps phase ii or liver detox. Milk thistle extract with no alcohol has been used also. Sam-e with a good b mix an l-methyl folate also. All these must be run by ob.
