It can take quite a while, especially if you just brought her home. What helped me a lot with Felix was holding him in his snuggle bag or wrapped in a fleece blanket so he could hide. I think being less exposed helped him relax quicker. I still do this occasionally when he's being extra grumpy. Have you tried leaving a t-shirt that smells like you in her cage? This can help a hedgehog get used to what you smell like and become more comfortable with you holding them.
