In brief: Be patient.

Hot flushes are not unusual postpartum, especially after tubal ligation.
Be reassured that they are alomst always self-limited and be patient. They should be gone by your 6-week postpartum ob/gyn visit. If they interfere with your daily activities, try Prozac (fluoxetine) or clonidine, after talking with your doctor. Rarely this is permanent and seen in sheehan's syndrome.
