In brief: Melasma
This is called melasma, or chloasma.
It is due to the hormonal influence oin the skin. Treatments must be done after pregnancy: chemical peels, superficial dermabrasion, to topical hydroquinone (perscription) will help. Also, use screen screens when in the sun. That will help prevent darkening of the melasma.
