My hair is dropping out rapidly after child birth. Is there a risk of getting bald?

In brief: No.

That is called a "telogen effluvium", and it's very common after delivering a baby.
(interestingly, the baby's hair will often thin temporarily too!) it will take awhile, but your hair will grow back. No worries.
