PBC and pregnancy

Hello all,

I'm looking for anyone who has experience with pregnancy after being diagnosed with PBC. Specifically, how did your body fare after delivery.

I have a 19 month old daughter and since she was about 6-8 months old, my body has been in a flare. We would like to try and have another baby, but I'm not sure I should. My pregnancy went beautifully, but it's the after effects that make me nervous. Thank you in advance for your time.

Hello, sorry cant offer you any advice regarding a second pregnancy, but I would think the best thing would be to try and arrange an appointment with your consultant to discuss it. Whatever you decide, I hope it all goes well for you. Take care.

I was diagnosed with pbc towards the end of my second pregnancy. It was a hard pregnancy and I felt exhausted. Still do most days. However, not sure if it's down to pbc or having two children so close together. I have two girls aged 1 and 2. I know must be mad😀. I say if you want another baby go for it, don't let pbc hold you back. X
