In brief: Hair loss

While this can certainly be pretty worrisome to anyone, this is a pretty common event post-pregnancy.
Unfortunately waiting for hair problems to resolve is literally like watching grass grow. It will get better but it will take several months.

In brief: Tincture of time

The technical name is "telogen effluvium", and it's pretty common.
I understand it's probably freaking you out, but the hair will grow back. There's nothing to do but wait, and maintain a good diet.
