Unfortunately, there isn't that I know of and I try to be pretty thorough when it comes to preventing breakage/loss etc.
After I had my daughter 18 months ago, I just let the cycle take its course because it is pure hormonal and your estrogen/progesterone levels are rebalancing themselves.
I shed for about 3 months or so, but it didn't nearly get as bad as my first child. The big difference was I was under less stress and stayed on top of healthy eating and drinking water.
Just make sure you keep your hair washed, conditioned (deep condition too) and moisturized and use minimal heat during this time. And continue to take your prenatals, eat healthy and drink lots (and lots) of water.
