Hair Loss???

Becky - posted on 07/24/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




Hello Ladies! just wanted to say i am really pleased with this group, i love reading everyone's posts, it's making me feel so much better about being diagnosed with PPD.

I do have a question for everyone...

one thing that i have noticed is severe hair loss.... I had my baby 4 months ago, and was diagnosed with PPD about a week and a half ago, although i had been noticing signs since my baby was born.

I have long curly (used to be thick) hair. and it is falling out at an alarming rate. I know hair loss is normal after having a baby, but i didn't realize that it was going to be this bad.. my hair line is actually receding quite badly and my hair is constantly knotting and coming out in clumps. It's actually starting to scare me the amount of hair that i am loosing..

is anyone else experiencing or been through this ???

That happened to me with my firstborn also. I guess it's just normal. My doctor told me it happens when you stop taking your prenatal vitamins after having all those extra nutrients for so long. Try going on a One-a-Day or an OTC prenatal, it's perfectly healthy and will actually give you some extra energy and curb the hair loss. Don't worry, eventually it all grows back.
