Hello,
What your wife was having is obstetric itch. A build-up of bile acids in the bloodstream causes a persistent itch in the last third of pregnancy. There is no cure for obstetric cholestasis. It s usually not serious but may cause still birth or premature birth. Some doctors prescribe ursodeoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring bile acid and is used as a medication. It is often taken to help relieve itch. However its effect on baby is not majorly known.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
