Hair loss after a baby

Is it normal for you to lose so much hair after you've had a baby? My hair is naturally thick, luckily and got even thicker and longer during pregnancy but now every time I run my hands through it more hair comes out.

When I'm in the shower it's clogging up the plug hole. It's all over the floor and my baby keeps picking it up. I can't see any bald patches and it seems to be coming from all over and not just from one place.

I'm not sure if I'm losing hair due to stress or if it's post pregnancy related?
