In brief: Yes
Hormonal fluctuations can cause hyperpigmentation.
It can fade as time passes but you once you have finished the pregnancy you can start witih topical products such as hydroquinone and Retin-A as well as a melanage minipeel. After breast feeding you can do more lasers since it is more invasive but with breast feeding you will still have some hormonal changes.
