After a forceps delivery how long will it take to fully recover?
The time taken to recover from a forceps delivery is usually 6-8 weeks, but ultimately, as each woman is different, the time may vary. Some women take longer to recover. Most mothers may be able to resume light daily activities in just a few days. Some women experience vaginal bleeding for a few days to a few weeks after delivery for which they would have to wear a sanitary napkin.
