Hi, everybody! I am Melanie Raposo, welcome to Mommy's Minute. Mild itching during pregnancy is common because of the increased blood supply to your skin. This can also lead to sweat rashes.

Ask your doctor or midwife about what you can take to ease itching. If the itching does become severe, see your doctor immediately. For more information visit www.ThePregnancyShow.com.
