    B12 can also be found in foods as opposed to having injections:

    You can find it mostly in seafood, beef, lamb, cheese and eggs.

    That is true.
    Mine was bad enough for me to need the injections. I'd say that if it's gotten to the point where your hair is falling out considerably, eating b12 enriched foods probably won't help.. But you can always try the vitamin rather than having the injections.

    Best to consult a doctor.

    Hi

    This will sounds a little scarey but check your head for bald patches. I only say this because just after my second bub and for a few months following I was loosing so much hair it was ridiculous. I kept putting it down to normal hormones, etc, but one day my partner notices a completely bald patch at the back which eventually grew to the size of my fist.

    I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata which is an autoimmune disorder and they can't really say why it happens, and there is no definite cure, but I do know I had low B12 in pregnancy and needed monthly injections. They also ran tests for a whole heap other autoimmune conditions and that is how we eventually diagnosed me with Coeliacs.

    My hair has come back, but it is white in that area, they can't say if it will happen again but I do know that by keeping my B12 up and not eating gluten I haven't had any more patches.

    Again, not trying to scare you, just pointing out that there can be many reasons for hair loss but sometimes it's not just a normal pregnancy thing and if you are concerned it is always worth talking over further with your care provider. Good luck!!!
