Braiding hair before having baby

Hi everyone! So I’m thinking I’d like to get either braids or twists a couple of weeks before baby comes to make life easier. Thing is, my mum said it’s not good to put heavy extensions in my hair because my hair might fall out or something like that, post delivery? She’s got severe alopecia and blamed it on braiding her hair pre-delivery and giving birth, 🫣 I’m worried now. Anyone heard of that? Or will I be ok?

I would go braids over twists for sure

That seems extreme and perhaps just her experience not the norm. I had knotless braids and it was fine. I had a little shedding post partum but it came after I took the braids out. I highly recommend them because my sister didn’t have them and looked like absolute trash during delivery lol

I’ve had my hair braided for baby’s arrival - think it just makes sense!

If you can you could try but in this state lol don’t want you to exert yourself and end up not liking the outcome cause it’s gonna be time consuming..and they require more care than the regular braids I think
