In brief: See below

This agent i considered "possibly unsafe" during lactation.
Animal studies also show adverse fetal effects, so the risks to mother must be weighed against the risks to the fetus.

In brief: No

Paliperidone is a "pregnancy category c" medication.
This means that there may be risks with using the medication. Specifically for paliperidone, infants born to women who take the medication during the third trimester are at risk for having withdrawal symtoms, tremors, and involuntary muscle contractions. T breast feeding is also not recommended.
