In brief: Telogen effluvium

After an extreme stress to the body, such as pregnancy and delivery, the hairs go into a resting stage and then about 3 months later the resting hairs fall out.
Actually they are pushed out by new growing hairs in the same follicle. Don't worry about it. Your hair will return to its normal fullness over the next 6 months.
