Contrary to what some may believe, social networks are not totally useless. We can sometimes find tips and tricks very useful, and able to greatly facilitate our daily lives. But did you know that social networks can save lives? That's the story of this pregnant woman who saved her baby's life with an article posted on Facebook.

Pregnancy is a time at once very pleasant, and very difficult to live. This is a period during which pregnant women have the opportunity to discover wonderful sensations they did not know before. But it is also a delicate period where they must pay particular attention to their state of health, and that of their baby to avoid any kind of inconvenience. Here is the story of this pregnant woman who was suffering from very painful itching, and who was able to save her baby thanks to her vigilance, and to the advice of her Facebook friends.

A life saved thanks to an article published on Facebook:

Everything was going well for Christina, a pregnant woman who was waiting with great haste for the arrival of her baby. But one day, the mother started to suffer from very severe itching, which prevented her from sleeping during the night. Worried by this unusual symptom, she decided to publish an article on her Facebook account, in which she asked for the advice of her friends.

A few minutes after the publication of her article, Christina was shocked by the comments of her friends. They explained to her that she absolutely had to consult her doctor, and that the itching she suffered is a symptom of a disease called cholestasis, a disease that can cause the death of her baby! Frightened by what she had just learned, Christina was soon to visit her doctor, who explained that her itching actually reported the presence of cholestasis, and that she could have put the life of her baby in danger if she had not consulted him.

Thanks to the advice of her friends, and with the help of her doctor, Christina was able to give birth to a pretty girl in March 2018.

Moral of the story ? Never neglect such a mild symptom, and never hesitate to do regular checks during your pregnancy.

What is gestational cholestasis?

Gestational cholestasis is a liver condition that usually occurs during the last months of pregnancy (Last Quarter). This disease is characterized by a dysfunction in the liver cells that no longer manage to evacuate the bile acids. The latter then pass into the blood and accumulate there, risking to reach the fetus via the placenta. Congenital cholestasis can be caused by hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, and its impact on the health of the fetus can be very heavy.

What are the symptoms of pregnancy cholestasis?
Congenital cholestasis may be indicated by several symptoms, which unfortunately often go unnoticed by many pregnant women. Here is the list of these symptoms:

- Severe and frequent itching localized in several parts of the body, and more particularly in the hands and feet.

- Urine of dark color.
- Abdominal pain.
- Stools lighter than usual.
- General and persistent tiredness.
- Loss of appetite.
- Depression and insomnia.
- Yellowing of the eyes, and of the skin.
- Nausea and vomiting.

Note: Although these symptoms do not necessarily indicate the presence of cholestasis, it is strongly recommended to consult your doctor as soon as they appear to avoid any inconvenience.

How to avoid pregnancy cholestasis, and other diseases related to pregnancy?

Here are some very important tips to follow if you want to spend your pregnancy in the best conditions, while taking care of the health of your fetus:

- Adopt a healthy and balanced diet, focus on fruits and vegetables, and avoid processed foods. These can have a very negative impact on your health and that of your future baby.
- If your doctor prescribes food supplements during your pregnancy, take them, but never exceed the recommended doses.
- Fight against physical inactivity and stress by practicing sports activities adapted to pregnant women.
- Do not perform activities that require a lot of effort.
- Stop the smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages, and avoid frequenting smoky places.
- Consult your gynecologist regularly even when everything seems to be working normally.
- Moisturize your body by drinking a sufficient amount of water daily.
- Get enough sleep (At least 8 hours a day).
- Wear comfortable clothing, and avoid tight clothing and too-sticky fabrics.
- Pay particular attention to your hygiene in order to avoid any possible infection.
- Never take any medicine without a prescription without seeking the advice of a specialist.
