Liver Diseases in pregnancy represents rare disorders and current data is derived primarily from single centres and retrospective cohorts. Moreover, the population prevalence of these diseases is low and to-date, it has proven difficult to generate reliable data at a patient level. This is a multi-center, prospective cohort study that will open at 3 centers within the UK; and 4 centers in the European Union. The investigators will aim to collect data and blood samples at various time points, for patients presenting with liver disease during pregnancy. The main rationale behind this study is to establish a platform that enables detailed review of the outcomes of these rare diseases; to help classify and stratify patients according to risk and develop interventional studies and care pathways to improve overall outcome.
