Thanks for writing to us.
The mild rise of liver enzymes during pregnancy is a normal finding due to cholestasis caused by pregnancy. The positive IgG antibody is suggestive of an old infection and no active treatment is required right now.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
