I gave birth and am losing my hair!

Postnatal, Your questions

Marie, I don’t know what to do! Since I gave birth, I am losing all my hair just with my fingers or my hairbrush! I can find it all around the house! I am scared it will keep falling out. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Orphalie


Hello Orphalie, I understand why you are uncomfortable with your situation. Many pregnant or new mothers have told me the same thing. Now, before suggesting possible solutions, I would like you to learn about why this is occurring. I wrote an article about hair-loss during pregnancy and after childbirth. It also includes several strategies to deal with the issue. Please read my article Hair-loss and Motherhood.

Talk soon,

Marie
