2 doctors agree
In brief: Hair loss post birth
This is normal, and may continue for up to 6 or 9 months.
It is called "telogen effluvium" and is temporarily induced at the end of pregnancy by the abrupt changes of hormone levels and the stress of delivery. So what is needed is patience; it will pass.
