How long does it take most women to lose weight after pregnancy?

In brief: 6-12 mos

Usually up to a year. But it takes work and it is important to get enough sleep and exercise to normalize growth and thyroid hormones.

In brief: Too long

Sadly most women do not lose their pregnancy weight.
It can be challenging unless you are motivated and disciplined. Breastfeed, start exercising as soon as your doctor tells you to, and eat largely a plant based diet of unprocessed foods.
