Anyone have problems with hair loss after pregnancy?

I just had my baby in August and all of my shedded hair started coming out 3 months ago. My hair has finally stopped all of the shedding now. My hair is thicker but my edges are missing hair now. I already had a spot on each side of my edges that were thin and missing a little hair from damage years ago. Now I have hair missing in areas that had hair plus more in the parts that was already thin. I can't even pull my hair back and wear a puff now. Has anyone experienced this before? Did your edges finally grow back and did you use anything to grow them back?

    I didnt but my close gf did. It took awhile before it grew back in. She is a Type 3 so it was very visible. She stopped wearing her hair up for about 6 months and just massage the area lightly before bed. Its since grew back in.


    Im sure others will chime in with some other helpful tips

    My hair is pretty thick so most people didn't notice the shedding, except on the edges. It was definitely noticeable there. It did grow back in. I didn't do anything special. Just waited it out. It took about 3 months after the shedding started for it to slow down and about 2 more months until my edges thickened up.

    Good luck.
