So when you are pregnant increased levels of estrogen prolong the growth phase of your hair and limit the natural shed. It takes a few months for the hormones to even out again but around 3 to 4 months later you hair gets back on track with its normal cycle and all that lovely hair that should have been shed over the last 9 months and didn't, starts to go. Its completely natural, most women go through it and there really isn't much you can do. There shouldn't be bald patches though so if you are seeing that its best to go see the doctor and make sure nothing else is afoot.
