In brief: 6 -8 weeks

In part it depends on what you need to heal.
In general, your uterus and vagina have healed in usually 6-8 weeks. Any incisions may take longer to heal completely. Eating well, lots of fluid and getting rest when you can will speed recovery.

In brief: POSTPARTUM

It takes a few days to few weeks depending on what happened during delivery if there's complications or not.
