Hair Loss After Pregnancy: It'll Freak You Out, but Here's Why You Probably Shouldn't Worry by Cheryl Leahy

Has your hair fallen out since you have given birth? It's probably normal! A few months after I had my daughter, I noticed my hair falling out, even by the handful after a shower. According to my doctor, this has to do with a drastic decline in estrogen levels. 

During pregnancy, the body doesn't shed hair as quickly as it normally would, but it catches up after giving birth. Your hair should be back to normal by your child's first birthday, but always consult your doctor with concerns!
