FitTea invited me to share my post natal weight loss story.
During pregnancy I gained 50 pounds. It was my first (and only) pregnancy. I am thankful that I did not develop gestational diabetes. In fact I was on target with my weight gains as determined by my doctor. It wasn't until the end of my pregnancy that the most of my gains occurred. My pregnancy was considered high risk. I am an "advanced maternal aged" mom. It was both joyous and scary.
Fast forward to baby being born. In June of 2010 we had a healthy 8 pound 3 ounce baby boy. By the time I was discharged from the hospital I was 30 pound lighter. I did everything that I could to ensure the health of my child. I breastfed. Everything I ate was done mindfully. I did not want to pass along anything harmful to my baby boy. I didn't take any drastic measures in trying to lose weight. Since I was breastfeeding, I needed my calories. I didn't want to risk losing milk production.
I didn't weigh myself until February 2011, when our son was 8 months old. I had lost a 7 pounds, without trying. No diet or exercise involved. I returned to work and was either breastfeeding or pumping constantly. By the end of March 2011, I had lost another 5 pounds. Total weight gained in pregnancy 50 lbs. Total weight LOST 42 lbs. I was left with 8 pounds to get to my pre-pregnancy weight.
The folks at +Fittea has an option for new moms: PostNatal Fatburner . If you are researching herbal supplements to assist in your weight loss efforts, visit the FitTea website. Check with your doctor to see if this is a good option for you. Their product may be what you are looking for.

That last 8 pounds was the toughest to lose. I think that had I learned of FitTea's PostNatal Fatburner, I may have tried it. I would definitely talk to my doctor before trying any type of weight loss program or supplement.
