When I was pregnant, like many other expecting first-time moms, I received a ton of unsolicited advice. I was constantly fed advice on what to do during pregnancy, childbirth and as a parent–some of it useful and some not so much. But there is one thing that NOBODY told me to prepare for…postpartum hair-loss and thinning. Seriously, how did no one give me a heads up about this? I remember showering a few weeks after Mason was born and I noticed a crazy amount of hair falling out and I was so freaked out! I actually brought it up to my doctor thinking there was something seriously wrong with me and she sort of laughed it off because it was so common. Apparently, it’s totally normal to lose an absurd amount of hair and or your hair to become noticeably thinner postpartum but nobody tells you about it until after it happens.
