June is ICP Awareness Month

Help Us Raise Awareness During the Month of June!

June is ICP Awareness Month

The founder of ICP Care lost her first born, Jorden, on June 10, 2003. We have dedicated the entire month of June in memory of Jorden with June 10 as ICP Awareness Day. We honor each baby lost to ICP and support the mothers who have experienced this tragic loss due to Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy.

We also use the month of June to raise awareness and spread education about this high risk pregnancy condition. We are passionate about empowering every woman with ICP so she has the resources she needs to advocate for proper testing, medication and early delivery – to save her baby’s life.
