  • Normal! This is postpartum hair loss. You didn't lose anything while pregnant and now your body is making up for it.

    It will grow back. Don't worry about it. EVERY woman goes through this.

  • Well, yes and no. It *IS* normal to have some, sometimes drastic hair loss after pregnancy. HOWEVER, coupled with extreme fatigue, muscle aches and joint aches it could mean that your thyroid is out of whack. Please get it checked.
