Did you have a question about hair falling out?

I found that I was shedding a TON of hair around 3 months postpartum. It would have scared the crap out of me to see so much hair falling out except that I have a friend with a baby 2 months older than my oldest. She warned me about it.

Seems that the pregnancy hormones that are responsible for many women growing thicker hair during pregnancy also contribute to the excess shedding of hair after baby is born. Completely normal. Some women don't notice it all, others notice some, and still others loose enough that they worry they will go bald. I haven't actually heard of anyone going bald though. And once your hormones settle down a bit, your hair will probably grow in just like it used to before you even became pregnant.
