Hi there, after a normal delivery, eg no tearing etc, you should recover fairly quickly, usually within a couple of days you should almost feel like your old self again, I was fine about 5 minutes after the birth of my first baby, up and walking around myself, much to the distress of the nurses lol. after a complicated birth it may take a good few days longer but should still be fairly quick. after a cesarian section however the recovery time in around 8 weeks minimum. good luck and enjoy being a parent :)

I had a c-section and actually healed quite quickly.  I was up walking less then 12 hours afterward which I think helped quite a bit.  I followed my Dr.'s instructions to the letter and also was fortunate to have no infection or anything to slow me down.  I have never had a vaginal delievery, so if that is the case with you, I'm sorry I can't be of more help.
