Your doctor is right.Retinoids should not be used when you plan a baby-before/during/after pregnancy.It should be discontinued in advance until you stop nursing the baby.
Kozimax has Arbutin,Kojic acid,Vitamin C,Liquorice.As far I know it is prescribed during/after pregnancies for Melasma and Hyper-pigmentation.So you can use it.There is no potential risks involved with Kojic acid.Do confirm with your doctor once before using it.Another similar formula is KojiGlo Gel.
Kindly be cautious and check up with your doctor once before you use any medication as some medications should be avoided during pregnancy.
