    I know you have said the defining gel is not safe during pregnancy but I did not know if that was when it was put on the stomach. Are the legs ok? Or this product is not ok period when pregnant?

  2. Karyn says:

    I am EBF my 4 month old and ordered wraps but now I’m seeing they are not safe but I can wrap my face. Why can I wrap my face but no where else? It doesn’t say why you can’t wrap while breastfeeding. Can you please explain?

  3. Lyndsie says:

    Hi, I am wondering if taking thermofit and fat fighters while trying to get pregnant are harmful? I was taking these and got pregnant twice and lost both babies. I have a healthy one year old, and This is the only lifestyle change I made after having her. So could the thermofit and fat fighters be what’s causing the loss of the babies?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      I’m so sorry Lyndsie!!!! I’m not sure these caused you to lose your babies, but I wouldn’t recommend taking them while trying to become pregnant.

  4. Katie says:

    Hi Tamara! I am currently breastfeeding my 8 month old and have used the hair skin and nails for a week. I will stop and wait until after I am done nursing but just want to double check that it won’t hurt my infant. Thanks!

  5. Corrie says:

    Hi Tamara!

    My cousin is pregnant and the due date is coming up in a couple months. I’d like to clarify something before I give her this list of safe products โ€” just so I don’t make any wrong assumptions!

    Since Vital is not on your list, but is mentioned on the photo displayed right below it โ€” I just want to make extra sure.. By “Vital”, it’s referring to all 3 Vitals: Minerals, Omega-3, and Core Nutrition..correct?

    Do you personally see them as safe/beneficial during pregnancy or after pregnancy?

    Thank you!
    โ€” Corrie

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      By there are 3 different ‘vitals’ in the product guide. vitamins, minerals & omegas. I would take them if I was pregnant, but would ask that your cousin show the ingredients to her dr before taking them.


  6. caylee says:

    I have been taking the fat fighters and thermofit as well as the greens and I think i might be pregnant. Should I stop taking these? or since we are trying to get pregnant should i not take these items anymore.

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      None of these items are approved by ItWorks as safe during pregnancy. I have heard of people using the greens occasionally while pregnant after having their doctors approval.

      good luck ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Samantha says:

    I am 20 weeks pregnant and used the defining gel 3-4 times and then read up and said not to use! Will everything be OK?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      you should be ok. try the stretch mark cream!!!! that’s awesome for pregnancy ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      Ali, Congrats!!!

      you should be ok, but check with your dr if you’re really concerned ๐Ÿ™‚
      p.s. try the stretch mark cream, it’s amazing!!!


  8. A. Wilson says:

    I have a perfectly healthy 6 month old and I am perfectly healthy. I am breastfeeding but supplementing at times and pump what I can at work. What would you recommend to help me maintain my weight and help me to loss a bit more And help with my energy level?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      A. Wilson,

      there aren’t many supplements that I can safely recommend while breast feeing. but if you want to chat more about general health why don’t you schedule a call with me! you’ll see the link for that at the bottom of my home page ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Kelsey says:

        I am breastfeeding and already ordered wraps. Is it not recommended because it gets in your supply or just because its on your skin and it shouldn’t touch the baby?

      • Ceara says:

        I went to your page and couldn’t find a way to contact you to ask:
        I just found out I’m 6 weeks pregnant and I’m leaving for a beach holiday in 2 weeks and would like to use the body wraps to deflate the bloating in my stomach before I leave. Is that safe?

  9. Elizabeth Avila says:

    I just took a pregnancy test and came out positive…I did a wrap a couple days ago should I be worried since it’s not safe to use it while pregnant??๐Ÿ˜ณ

  10. Emily says:

    Can I use facial wraps on my arms while Pregnant and will it work? Or can I use the body applicator on my arms while pregnant?

  11. Alisha says:

    Hi! I have purchased the fat fighters, thermo fit, wraps, and stretch mark cream. I am Breast feeding a 10 month old but only 3 times a day tops! Could I use the thermo fit and fat fighters if I use a little less then recommended, and the wraps right after a nursing session? And is the stretch mark cream safe?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      the stretch mark cream is perfectly safe. as for the rest, it’s not recommended while pregnant or nursing. sorry

  12. Amber says:

    Sorry if this was aready answered, but I didn’t see anyting on this page about the hair and nail pills. Are they pregnancy friendly?

  13. Erica says:

    Hi. Was wondering if I can have the greens on the go powder and the greens chews while I’m pregnant?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      it’s not recommended, but you can ask your dr if you’re concerned.

      congrats ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Tamara Lukie says:

      if you’re not pregnant then it’s safe. Why are you also taking prenatals? Do you wanna talk about your supplement needs more in depth? I’d love to chat!!


  14. Abigail Gerken says:

    I am currently breastfeeding (and pumping at work)… Was wondering if I am able to use the thermofit?? Is it safe while breastfeeding?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚


  15. Krista says:

    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 says:

      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.


      • says:

        what if i didnt know i was pregnant, will the hsn vitamins effecg anything i have been taking them for 1 month straight before i found out

      • Tamara Lukie says:

        you should be ok now. Why not contact me & we can work on a what you can use while pregant! email me at tamaralukie@

      • Tamara Lukie says:

        I’m not sure who told you that using defining gel on a baby was safe. It’s recommended for adults only. If someone has used it on their child, it is not with the approval of ItWorks, it has been done on their own account.

  16. Andrea says:

    Can a 16 month old drink the greens? My 2 year old has been for a year and I can’t remember the last time he was sick. He doesn’t eat enough vege’s or fruiits.

  17. Kassie R says:

    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?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      congrats on the news ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m sure you’ll be ok, if you are still worried you can take the ingredients list to your dr to be sure ๐Ÿ™‚


  18. marina says:

    Took a dose of the hair, skin, and nails because the rep said it was safe while breastfeeding, now I read that it’s not safe. Is my supply compromised? Will it affect my little one?

  19. Tanya says:

    Thank you for responding. Other than the greens what products can you use while breastfeeding? I was told the greens are safe. . Is that true?

  20. Kassie says:

    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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Areej says:

    Hi there , I’m not pregnant now, but I’m planning to be that after two years, Is it safe to be pregnant after belly wraps or the belly will be stretched

    Thank you

    • Tamara Lukie says:


      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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      don’t forget to order here please ~>order<~

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      Congrats Lisa!!!
      The hair skin & nails hasn’t been approved by our corporate head office. if you’d like, ask your dr.

  22. Ambrel says:

    I am currently Pregnant, but my prenatal and hormones are destroying my hair skin and nails. I was wondering if I could take hair skin nails while pregnant so supplement the nutrient loss.

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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.

  23. Tracy G. says:

    Hi, I’m 3 months pregnant and was wondering if there are any wraps for the thighs and if it is safe to use now at 3 months along?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      Tracy. As stated it is not recommended while pregnant. Thanks. Come by once you have that bundle of joy!

  24. Britt says:

    I was just wondering I have been using the defing gel on my legs and butt for about a week my best friend who is a distributor said it is safe to use there while nursing. Is this true or should I stop?

  25. Destiny says:

    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, hahaa….Note: I am breast feeding

  26. Tiffany says:

    Hi there, not sure if you are still answering questions but I have used a wrap on my abdomen and have taken 4 fat fighters so far in the past 2 weeks (as a trial from a distributor) and just found out I am pregnant… I’m am extremely worried! Please Help! Also where can I find the ingredients to show to my OB?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      I’m sure you’ll be fine. I wouldn’t worry.
      as for the ingredients, it will be on the website ~>

  27. Destiny says:

    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 says:

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Destiny says:

        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.

  28. cb says:

    Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ We are trying to conceive so I’m on daily prenatal is it safe to take Greens with them?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚
      get them here if it’s ok please ~> GreenS

    • Kaya Kali says:

      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.

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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!

  29. Natalie says:

    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 says:

      If you aren’t pregnant it is safe to use. If you are pregnant it’s not recommended.
      have fun on vacation Natalie

  30. yasmeen alvarez says:

    Hi I currently found out I’m pregnant, I’m about 6weeks and I’d like to know if I can wrap my face, my chin, my back and my arms??? If I can’t do all can you please let me know what I can wrap thank you so much, I’m really interested!

  31. Amanda says:

    Is it safe to use the wraps In-between pregnancies? My daughter is 18mo now and we plan on trying for another at the end of the summer. Should I wait until we are done having children.

  32. bianca says:

    I am pregnant going on 20 weeks! If i use the face wrap, will it make my face skinnier looking ?? & how about the arm wrap? Am I allowed to use that too, since its not on the stomach? Really curious!

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      facial wrap is totally fine. the body wraps ingredients are more concentrated, I’d wait until you’re done with the pregnancy ๐Ÿ™‚ try this package, it’s my fav!!

      • Tamara Lukie says:

        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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Shelly says:

    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!

  34. Dee says:

    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?

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Leslie says:

    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

  36. Tracy Lopez says:

    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)?

  37. Irma Garcia says:

    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

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Amy Hillston says:

    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 says:

      Congrats! the wraps are safe if you are not pregnant. If you are trying to become pregnant then you may consider waiting as your skin will stretch.

  39. Erin says:

    I didnโ€™t know I was pregnant and I used the wrap on my abdomen when I was about 4-5 weeks along. Iโ€™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 says:

      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!

      • Twins says:

        I am currently breastfeeding my twins once a day. This is only during the night to help them fall asleep. they are turning 13 months and i am desperate to use my body wraps but of course my kiddos are first and their safety..but do u know if it would be able to use them in my stomach,legs, etc..????????

      • Tamara Lukie says:

        I think it would be safe. best to wrap as soon as you feed them & not afterwards. ask your dr. if you are really concerned.

        let me know ๐Ÿ™‚


  40. Alyssa says:

    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 says:

      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!

  41. carleen soucia says:

    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!

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      hi Carleen, congrats on the baby news ๐Ÿ™‚ & 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!!!

      • ness says:

        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 says:

        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!!)

  42. Dawn Wathan says:

    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.

    • Tamara Lukie says:

      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!!

      • jasmine says:

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

      • Tamara Lukie says:

        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 ๐Ÿ™‚
