Help! You’ve just had a baby and now your hair is coming out in clumps! What to do? Firstly, breathe. This is a natural phenomenon called Telogen Effluvium or postpartum hair loss and it happens to about 50% of women after they give birth.
Why? The high levels of hormones in your body during pregnancy stop your hair from falling out leaving you with thick, luscious locks. After birth, your hormones go back to their pre-pregnancy levels, so all that hair you should have lost during nine months of pregnancy, just falls out at once!
