I itch all over

 

When To Call Your MidwifeSome itching around the stomach is normal as your skin is stretching around your growing baby.
If you notice that you have severe itching, particularly on the palms of your hands or the soles of your feet, the itching is worse at night and there is no rash with it you should see your midwife and be tested for a liver condition called obstetric cholestasis.
