ItWorks! Wraps & Pregnancy FAQ

So you have heard all about the incredible ItWorks! Wraps.

But you’re pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or just had your child & are nursing & you have questions?

From ItWorks Corporate…
Our products ARE naturally based.

From our It Works Product Coach:
We don’t recommend that pregnant or nursing moms use the
Ultimate Body Applicators or Defining Gel.


The reason ItWorks! does not recommend that women use the Ultimate Body Applicator or Defining Gel products when pregnant or nursing is because this may expose their baby (during development) to intense ingredients that are formulated just for adults.


This is to be conservative & is a strict ItWorks’ recommendation.
We are often asked if pregnant or nursing Moms can use any our products.

Of Course! :)

Our incredible Facial Applicators are fine to use since they do not as intense of ingredients. (yah!!!)

      they aren’t on my safe list Carly, but I’m not sure why or why not. check with your doctor if you want to make sure, but I would say it should be ok :)

    I’m currently still breastfeeding my 2 year old ( 26 months). I was curious to what products I could use? I’ve read that you could use the skinny wrap and that it may dry up your milk. is this true? Also, if I do decide to use the skinny wrap while currently breastfeeding would it harm my daughter and, if so in what ways?

    • Tamara Lukie
      February 22, 2015

      Hi Krista, congrats on the baby.

      all the ‘safe’ products are listed on this page. The skinny wrap is not on the list. sorry for the misleading info you’ve gotten.

    I used one of the stomach wraps when I was about 1-2 weeks before I found out I was pregnant. I am wondering what effects the detox process will have on the baby. Could this lead to the baby having higher heavy metals in her system from them being detoxed from me?

    Hi there,

    I just had my twins 3 months ago and have done the wraps twice now with not a single inch lost! I am following all the rules and tips and tricks I found online and nothing. Is it too soon after baby? Hormones and stuff…? I am not sure what I’m doing wrong. I am def drinking enough water… Please help :(

    • Tamara Lukie
      September 27, 2014

      could be the hormones yes. but keep trying. some see results after 45 min, others need a full treatment or two. remember something is ALWAYS happening ;)

    Thank you

    • Tamara Lukie
      August 29, 2014


      I think it’s totally safe to use before. Once you have had your children, you may use the wraps again. It’s all wonderfully natural hydration for your skin :)

    • Tamara Lukie
      August 15, 2014

      Please wait until you have given birth as the hormones tend to help with hair growth afterwards too. Keep in touch and when you have your bundle of joy email me and well talk about your wishes.

    I am breast feeding and already purchased the wrap pack unknowingly that it can not be used while breast feeding and my wraps expire in 2 months! I am desperate to get rid of my flabby belly and stretch marks. I purchased the stretch mark cream and was told it takes months to notice a difference, is that only for dark marks bc mine are white and was told those don’t go away. I need to tighten and tone but don’t know what to buy…

    • Tamara Lukie
      June 24, 2014

      Congrats on the new addition! You are safe to use the stretch mark cream. It should work on both light & dark marks, keep trying, I’m sure you’ll love the results. As for your wraps, don’t worry…. you can always use them right after feeding if you feel comfortable, otherwise they should be ok for longer then the expiry date as long as you keep them in a cool dark place tightley sealed :)

      • Destiny
        June 28, 2014

        Thank you! My wraps are still in package in my closet. I’ll be bf’ing till at least April. Can I use the facial wraps on my belly to tighten and firm? Also, the cleansing gel that helps to tighten too? I just want to get rid of the flabby belly a easy way, hahaha.

    Hello :) We are trying to conceive so I’m on daily prenatal is it safe to take Greens with them?

    • Tamara Lukie
      June 24, 2014

      The greens are ok occasionally. please talk with your doctor to make sure. I’d personally use them in the last 1/2 of the pregnancy. Ask the Dr. is what ItWorks says :)
      get them here if it’s ok please ~> GreenS

    • Kaya Kali
      August 6, 2014

      Hi CB, I can tell you that I feel tat Greens are mostly responsible for my current pregnancy. I am 39 years old and overweight and I felt I would never get pregnant. I started using greens and after 4 months, 25 lb weight lost, I WAS PREGGERS. I am now 9 weeks and 4 days pregnant and I feel amazing.

      Oh I took the ingredients to my doctor and he said some of them promote fertility.

  28. Gilma
    June 17, 2014

    Hi I am breastfeeding and I heard I can take the greens. But no wrapping until when ?

    • Tamara Lukie
      June 24, 2014

      Greens (found here) are pretty safe when breast feeding, don’t go over the reccomended dose tho. Wrapping I would say is best after breastfeeding is done, or if you can’t wait that long, wait until your baby is down to only a few (2-3) feedings a day & wrap right after the last feeding. Wraps are found here~> wraps!

    My husband and I have been trying to become pregnant for a couple months. We are going on vacation soon, and was wondering if I could use the applicators on my abdomen area, but not really quite sure yet if I am pregnant, it is too early to tell. Is it safe to still use them?

    • Tamara Lukie
      May 25, 2014

      If you aren’t pregnant it is safe to use. If you are pregnant it’s not recommended.

    • Tamara Lukie

    The picture of the round pregnant belly with the facial applicator made me laugh! Is that just a silly pic or is that something recommended to keep stretch marks away? I am a distributer and think it would be a great way to market them to pregnant women if there is any truth to that! Haha!

    • Tamara Lukie
      March 4, 2014

      I would breast feed first. make sure you only wear it for 45 minutes, then maybe even pump n dump afterwards. The wraps work for up to 72 hours, so that’s how long the natural ingredients are in your bod. good luck :)

    • Tamara Lukie
      February 20, 2014

      Corporate has said that it is not advisable to use the wraps while pregnant or breast feeding. The wraps are also meant for adults. Sorry. Please let me know when you are done breastfeeding & I’ll be more then happy to help you :)

    Hello! My husband and I just started trying to get pregnant. Are the wraps safe to use until I get a positive pregnancy test? If I don’t get pregnant for awhile then I’d like to be using them but not at the expense that they could hurt the baby if I do find out I’m pregnant.

    • Tamara Lukie
      December 20, 2013

    I didn’t know I was pregnant and I used the wrap on my abdomen when I was about 4-5 weeks along. I’m a little worried after finding out it is not recommended while you are pregnant. Do you know what the potential harmful effects are to a fetus? Thanks you for your time-

    • Tamara Lukie

      • Tamara Lukie
        August 21, 2014

    I am 30 weeks pregnant and was told that its safe to use the defining gel on my stretch marks during pregnancy, then I read something else that says its not safe. I would just like the facts about it to know that I won’t be harming my baby. Is the defining gel a detox product?

    • Tamara Lukie
      July 24, 2013

      Hi Alyssa,
      congrats on your new upcoming addition. As per our corporate head office, they do not reccomend the defining gel while pregnant. They do have a special stretch mark cream that is safe, you can find it here ~
      If you have already used the defining gel & are at all concerned, please take the ingredients to your dr.
      thanks for the important question!

    • Tamara Lukie
      July 22, 2013

      hi Carleen, congrats on the baby news :) & thanks for the query!
      I have to tell you, the wraps are NOT approved for use while being pregnant. You can of course come back after your done breastfeeding & try them out there! There is an incredible stretch mark cream that is safe for use while pregnant. I would totally reccomend that!
      the facial items are also safe while pregnant as well, I would recommend the greens. full of incredible goodness!!!

        Hi, I was told by many reps of it works that it is OK to use wraps on legs and arms please let me know. I also use the stretch mark cream but was also wanting to use wraps between the legs and my big arms…. Helpppp I’m 4months preggo and gaining fast

      • Tamara Lukie
        October 15, 2013

        Hello Ness. I’m not sure who told you that, but if you are pregnant, then I would NOT suggest it. This is a special time & your body will go thru crazy incredible changes. that is normal. I would suggest waiting until afterwards. See how well your body bounces back & then consider the wraps. Gaining weight is suppose to happen when your are growing a baby! Congrats & Good Luck (hope to speak with you more in 4-5 months!!)

    Not trying to cause you any sales problems here… I love It Works products and am a distributor myself but I wanted to let you know that the Greens actually also have an ingredient in them that could increase the chance of miscarriage. The Red Raspberry Leaf could cause problems as it can actually be used to induce labour.

      Hi Dawn. Thanks for the message. Your right that the greens have red raspberry leaf. It’s traditionally been used for centuries to help strengthen the uterus. For this reason it is not used in the first half of pregnancies, (the strengthening can cause uterus contractions or spasms, therein lies the miscarriage concerns) but after that is not only safe, but quite helpful! (Think easier delivery with a strong uterus!!) The amount in the greens is minimal, but if you have any worries, just take the ingredients list to your doc or mid~wife & they’ll help you out. Thanks again, & good luck with your ITWORKS venture. It truly is life changing!!

        would we only take the greens after the first half of pregnancy, or can we take it in the beginning also?

        thanks for the question. If it were ME, then I would feel safe taking the greens after around the 5th month of preganancy. I know many ladies who took them throughout their entire pregnancy. If you are concerned, I would print off the ingredients & take them to your dr. Hope that helps :)
