Skin Itchy During Pregnancy? You Are Not Alone!

A slightly annoying side effect of pregnancy can be itchy skin.

Mild itching is common due to the increased blood supply to the skin and then as your abdomen stretches to accommodate your growing baby, this can also start to itch.

It is completely normal, although if the itching becomes severe it can be a sign of a liver condition called obstetric cholestasis. This affects fewer than 1 in 100 pregnant women, but does need medical attention.

Try and stick to natural beauty products that are not heavily perfumed and loose clothing to help ease the itch!
