Part of Judd's Legacy's mission is to spread ICP Awareness and educate as many people as possible. We share our story and mission through speaking engagements and are always looking for another opportunity to spread awareness. If your club and/or organization is interested in having Judd's Legacy as your next guest speaker please contact us.
WHAT IS ICP?
Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy or ICP is a liver condition that may occur during pregnancy, usually third trimester, but may occur much earlier. ICP slows the expecting mother's normal flow of bile, causing bile to build up in your liver. This buildup can cause chemicals called bile acids to spill into your blood and tissues, leading to severe itching.
