My wife age 33 has been losing a lot of hair since the birth of our second son three years ago.

Hallo MKA
Hairloss after a pregnancy can be due to hormonal changes - she may need to check her thyroid hormone levels as well as her esterogen/progesterone levels. It may help to use a hair supplement like Nuhair vitamins, and a topical lotion like Minoxidil.
