it has catechins, caffeine, and few other " weight loss supplements" not worth taking it any time , specifically during lactation or pregnancy. find a local weight loss specialist.

Congratulations on the new addition to your family.  You should contact your pediatrician or ob/gyn to request advice before taking any weight loss supplements.
