There could be hope for some mamas. I had it with dc1, NOT with dc2, and am 34 wks with dc3 and no symptoms yet. If I avoid it with this baby too, I will contact the research team in Britain (I'm in the USA but there's a big research team in Britain for cholestasis right now) and report my case. I've heard too about the high recurrence rate. But the latest study out of Europe says it's like a 60 or a little higher % recurrence rate.
The way I understand it, cholestasis can be genetic and / or environmental. I did lots of things different between dc1 and dc2 with my diet that could have made all the difference. I don't know if the things that I did would work for others or not. Maybe I was lucky and had more of an environmentally-induced case. The main thing I did was change my diet to that which is described on www.westonaprice.org
. I did other things too. You can PM me if you wish.
