In brief: Fetal monitoring
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.
