‘Don’t Ignore The Itch’ — Pregnant Mom’s Facebook Rant May Have Saved Her Baby from Dying in Utero

Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Christina DePino had had enough. The first-time mommy-to-be took to Facebook in a complaint about terrible itching throughout her pregnancy — a complaint she says may have saved her daughter’s life.

“What had started as an all-over itch started to become more pronounced on the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet,” DePino told TODAY. “It got to the point that I could no longer sleep at night … my arms and legs were bleeding from all the scratching.”

After ranting about the discomfort on Facebook, several of DePino’s friends cautioned that she may have cholestasis — a hormonal condition that affects the mother’s gallbladder and can cause babies to die in utero when left undetected.

[Thirty-five] weeks pregnant, DePino googled “cholestasis of pregnancy,” and after learning that it could cause her baby to be stillborn, she contacted her doctor and moved forward with the diagnostic testing that would diagnose the condition.

She was officially diagnosed with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy and gave birth at 37 weeks after doctors recommended labor be induced to lower the risks of health complications to her daughter.

“As soon as I was holding my beautiful baby girl in my arms, all I could think was, ‘What if?’ ” DePino said. “What if I had not complained on Facebook? What if no one had told me? All I could think was that I had to let other women know. I didn’t want any of them to wonder what had happened to their perfectly healthy baby.”
