Hello,
Thank you for writing to HCM

During ppregnancy hair goes in anagen phase due to hormones and does not shed. These hair shed after labour for about 6 months. Do not worry about this.
You can take multivitamin supplementation during lactation. Take tablet.Anofer daily once and tablet biotin 5mg daily once.

Regards.
