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!!!)

      • Kassandra. The facial wraps are safe for pregnant and nursing moms. They will also tighten tone & firm. Have you ordered them yet? There’s a link above to order them ;)

  1. 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!

  2. If I’m breast feeding an used it works wraps. How long should I wait to breast feed? Is there an amount of time it stays in your system?

    • 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 :)

  3. I had a miscarriage yesterday I was only 5 weeks pregnant can I still use my it work products? I have the wraps the greens, defining gel and the fight fighter. Because I want to start them already :/ please let me know

  4. I am 31 weeks pregnant and interested in trying the Hair Skin Nails product – do you know if this is safe to use while pregnant (and nursing)?

  5. Hello I want to know if it is safe for me and most of anything my child to do the body wraps if I just gave birth and is currently breast feeding

    • Irma,
      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 :)

  6. 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.

  7. Hi-
    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-

    • Erin, thanks for the question. I don’t think there is too much to worry about, but if you are concerned take the ingredients to your dr. to check. Congrats on the new addition!

  8. 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?

    • 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!

  9. hi, I was wondering if I could use the it works wraps on my thighs and arms because I am pregnant and have gained some weight in those areas. was just wondering if it was safe!

    • 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

      • 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!!)

  10. 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?

      • Jasmine,
        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 :)
