Manual Testing in Devops Pipeline

We are currently doing traditional waterfall model where we have manual and automation tests in SIT and UAT environments. We are moving to Agile/Devops and I am working on POC on Devops. Based on my research, entire testing deployment is automated from Dev to Production for Devops. However when we implement, we want to do automatic code deployments in different environments but stop the pipeline to conduct manual QA testing and Manual UAT before the code is signed off for PROD deployment (in addition to selenium & API testing). If I use Jenkins (or Deployment Manager) for Devops, is it recommended to stop the pipeline for few days until manual QA is completed and manual approval is done? How is manual testing accounted in Devops implementations? Any insights would be helpful.

Note - We are in Pega 7.2 and planning upgrade next year
