yes - happened to me a few months after giving birth. i think it's all the extra hair you grew when pregnant and hormonal coming out... it was amazing how much!

Yes this happened to me a few weeks after both babies, I was worried it was due to stress but it's very common apparently. I couldn't believe how much was coming out in huge clumps, very scary!

Yes and to me, for about a year after giving birth. hairs everywhere, in the bath, on my pillow, carpet, you name it. It did stop though.

I lost lots of hair about 4 months after giving birth with both of mine. I hardly lost any hair when pregnant and it was long and lovely and then it all fell out It did grow back though otherwise I would look like that Rossi bloke from status quo with the widows peak and ponytail (no sidies though).
