Just to reassure you that this is completely normal... During pregnancy, the hormones mean that your hair doesn't fall out constantly like it normally does. Several weeks after you've given birth, when your hormones go back to normal, the hair that should have fallen out over the last 9 months starts to fall out. It can be quite dramatic - I remember losing handfuls of hair every time I washed my hair for weeks after I gave birth. But it stops after a few weeks and then your hair will start to grow back again. It can be a bit odd, as you end up with short sections of hair... My advice, would be just to get a new haircut while it grows back!
