    I am 4 months postpartum now and my hair has been falling out in clumps for a month or so. It’s rather alarming. I am wondering if there’s anything I can do to mitigate the loss, or does it have to happen?

    I am still exclusively breastfeeding my baby on demand. I’ve already had 3 periods despite this.

    Have you had your iron levels checked? Also, are you still taking your prentatal vitamins?

    It's normal... It happens with animals too. During pregnancy, less hair are lost and a few months after giving as hormones normalize, the extra hair is lost.

    I had the same thing happen to me amd I still have the same volume as before.
