Question Title Mikvah 4.5 weeks post birth
By Rabbi Rabbi Elhanan Lewis
The Question Hi Rav,

My wife will be going to the mikvah 4.5 weeks after birth.

She is feeling some discomfort post birth.

1. Is intercourse a must on Mikvah Night?

2. Are the modes of intercourse that involve minimal penetration that are permitted?

Answer Title Mikvah 4.5 weeks post birth
The Answer Shalom
Sorry for the delay in answering
Having intercourse on mikveh night is part of mitzvat onah, the mitzvah is to have pleasurable marital relations. In the case having relations does not bring pleasure the couple can decide to avoid marital relations until it is.
In the case the preferred position for relations is impossible or painful you can choose a different position as long as there is minimal penetration
All the best
