Originally, she thought it was just ordinary skin inflammation or allergies, but the results of the examination were shocked. It turned out that she was suffering from intrahepatic cholestasis during pregnancy.

Once abnormal fetal movement is found, including the frequency of fetal movement is significantly less than usual or particularly frequent, you need to go to the hospital for further examination immediately. Pregnant mothers can receive drug treatment under the guidance of a doctor. If the pregnancy has exceeded 32 weeks, it is better to be hospitalized for observation. Monitoring can be carried out through a fetal monitor, measuring fetal maturity, and measuring placental function.
