ICP Care Ambassador
My name is Tiffani Ice, I am the Virginia Ambassador for ICP Care. I was diagnosed with ICP during my third pregnancy. I had never heard of Cholestasis prior, so I thank ICP Care for supplying the knowledge and support I needed to self-advocate for myself and son. My levels were quite high at the time of my diagnosis. (100µmol/L) so we took an aggressive treatment approach. My treatment consisted of dieting, medication to lower bile levels, frequent testing and monitoring, and early induction at 36 weeks. Shortly after my son was born, we had to return to the hospital for bilirubin treatment, but it was quickly managed. It would be my pleasure to help the ICP Care community support women with education and resources as they did for me. The ICP Care support group and website got me through cholestasis during my third pregnancy.
My goals as an ICP Care Ambassador are to help women get through this time in their lives because I was lost before I was directed to ICP Care.
