What to do about hair loss after pregnancy

I got really worried about all the hair I lost after my first few pregnancies. It seemed like I was going bald! But I never did anything for it. I remember people telling me it could be some mineral or vitamin deficiency, never found out what.

My hair survived and I have thick hair again, though sometimes I wonder if it is really as thick as it use to be. I am just thankful I wasn't actually going bald.

Elsewhere I have read hair loss after pregnancy occurs because pregnancy delays the growing stage so when we have our baby the growing stage becomes shorter again requiring us to lose our normal 100 hairs/day, so it just seems like we are losing a lot of hair. Some women may not even notice any drastic changes.
