Hair growth can be affected by changes in hormone levels before, during, and after pregnancy. It's totally natural to experience hormone imbalance after giving birth and postpartum hair loss is one of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
During pregnancy, your body releases more estrogen which might make your hair fuller and thicker and after childbirth, the estrogen level begins to drop which might cause your hair to start shedding. If you experience hair loss after childbirth there is no need to be alarmed it is a condition that can be managed.
