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
I can barely come my hair now and I’m about to get braids again lol
