Brief Answer:
C section at 37 weeks advisable

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns about the cholestasis.

Your liver enzymes are high because of cholestasis which is commonly seen in pregnancy. This is relieved only after delivery. Hence your doctor is trying to deliver you early at 37 weeks to prevent cholestasis complications and threat to your life.

It is difficult to induce normal delivery early at 37 weeks and operative delivery advisable.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Regards,
Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Weight loss helps

Hi,

Weight loss should help. Lose weight before getting pregnant again and avoid eating food with much oil and sugar in it.

This should help in avoiding it.
