In brief: 30-100 days

It depends on whether or not the mother is breastfeeding, which can suppress ovulation and periods.
In the absence of breastfeeding, periods usually return sooner. If a new mother breastfeeds exclusively, periods may not return for months. One important thing to remember is that you can still get pregnant before your first period after a delivery...Ovulation occurs first.
