I know that losing hair is common post natal, but please tell me it will grow back thicker again. Is there anything I can do minimize even more hair falling out or better yet, help it to grow back??
Oddly enough, I didn't experience this with my first baby - although, the two pregnancies/post natal have been different altogether. I'm not sure how it's related, but I'm breast feeding my son (granted, I was BF my first born when she was 6 months any beyond too and I didn't lose hair like this).
Help! I need words of encouragement please.
Thank you. xx
Now at 2 years post partum, my hair is as thick as it always has been. I can't tell a difference at all. I hope this helps to ease your mind. I think if you get really concerned, you can always check with a doctor.
Other than that, hair loss months after pregnancy can be very normal. I believe one reason is b/c during pregnancy, we tend to not shed our typical amount of hair; thus, a pregnant woman's hair can appear especially thick and lush. Happened to me, and unfortunately my hair did not grow back in a thicker manner after the postpartum shedding phase.

Having your thyroid checked pp is never a bad idea, tho.
