Guiding you beyond postpartum recovery to stronger than you ever were

If you've struggled far too long with your body after babies...

If you've tried other options and failed. If you just can't find the answers you're looking for. Maybe you set the bar too low. Instead of recovering your pre-baby body, you need to go deeper. Only then can you solve problems you never knew you had and discover a better version of you than you've ever known.

Whether your baby is 35 days old or 35 years old, it is never too early or too late. 

Imagine if ...


Imagine if you could have all this and more.

Discover the expert you haven't consulted ... YOU.

As a physical therapist for 15+ years, I know individualized care is key. A cookie-cutter approach may work for some, but it won't reach everyone. If you're an outlier for any reason--previous injury, abnormal posture, lifestyle, genetics, etc.--following directions written for others won't get you the results you want.

A good pelvic floor physical therapist is the best answer. But if you're limited by time, money, resources, or location, Mama Made Strong is the alternative for you.

Using everyday language and video instruction, this program guides you through multiple tests to perform on yourself. Based on these results, it then directs you how to make the most effective change. Think choose-your-own-adventure rather than one-size-fits-all.

How does it work?

Available 24/7, anywhere you have an internet connection through desktop, tablet, or mobile device. 100% online program available on your schedule.
Everything you need to understand your postpartum body in 7 easy-to-follow modules, requiring NO special equipment or additional purchases
Immediate access to all 7 modules: Breathing, Alignment, Pelvic Floor, Abs, Hips, Feet, Upper Body

What's in a module?

  • Each module contains 2-4 self-assessments. The assessments you DON'T pass indicate where to target your efforts, so you only do exercises YOU need to do.
  • The results of your self-assessments will guide you through 100+ exercises specific to YOUR body. Instead of an exercise routine, you'll learn better ways to move.
  • This method allows you to make gains all day, every day, even when you don't have time for formal exercise.

"Since having my kids, I haven't peed myself, but I've come close enough to make me uncomfortable. After one month with Mama Made Strong, I bounced on a pogo ball over the weekend, and I wasn't even close to feeling like I was going to pee. I feel like I still have a ways to go, but I'm much better at engaging my core and pelvic floor."

"I had twins that were 8 lbs 11 oz and 6 lbs 11 oz when born. Needless to say, my stomach muscles became mush. I love how Betsy has created a program that you can customize to your own deficits. Also, I love how you can go at your own pace. Life gets in the way, but with this program you can incorporate the skills you learn into every day life (such as retraining your muscles to work correctly when breathing, or in sitting, standing, lifting those babies, etc.). I feel my abdominal muscles getting stronger and my 'pooch' is decreasing. I highly recommend this program!"

"I've been struggling with back pain for decades, and your program seems to be helping more than the physical therapy, chiropractic care, massage, etc. I've tried over the years ... I think what's so great about your approach is that clients can individualize what works for them ... It's been 30 years of struggling. I now have the tools I need to enjoy a painfree life. This is incredible and honestly unexpected."

"I was worried I was too old. My babies are in their 20's, but my body remains as it was from having them. For 3 or 4 years now, I have been having little accidents and wearing pads. Now, after two months with this program, I no longer need the pads. No more accidents. Also, I have been unable to lie on my back for relaxation with yoga. The pain in the middle of my back has been so intense it has reduced me to tears. This morning after my yoga session, guess what ... no pain ... nothing ... and the fear of the pain just left me as I breathed and used my pelvic floor. I am amazed. Thank you thank you thank you so much."

The mama behind Mama Made Strong:

Betsy Petry-Johnson, PT, OCS


Even before my triplets were born, I knew my recovery would be difficult. But I assumed I could fall back on decades of physical conditioning and my expertise as a physical therapist and a Board-certified specialist in Orthopedics. Instead, 35 weeks of a triplet pregnancy and the monumental task of caring for 3 babies quickly humbled me.

When my physical recovery stalled, I tried a few reputable online programs. No luck. Growing ever more frustrated, I began to study courses for physical therapists who treat postpartum women. Only by breaking this information into smaller and smaller pieces could I finally see the compensations I'd constructed around a childhood injury. In combination with the effects of pregnancy, at last, I had my answers.

Over several months, I peeled away the movement patterns that blocked my progress and built a system of introspection and focused effort. I fleshed it out to cover multiple possible scenarios and then shared it with other mothers and physical therapists. They returned with terrific feedback for fine-tuning and with success in solving an array of issues. Instead of following one singular routine, this tailored exercise prescription meets unique needs and delivers hard-to-find results. Now, I'm so pleased to be able to share it with you.

"Twenty years of lower back pain. One week with your course suggestions and I'm already starting to feel better."


mother of 3

"I refuse to give up running and hiking, so I've tried multiple doctors, therapists, books, videos ... just about everything. Hands down, you've given me the best cues and instruction of anyone I've gone to see or anyone I've watched, read, or listened to."

  • Who this program is for:

    • The self-motivated mama who likes to solve problems. Nobody knows your body like you do.
    • The frustrated woman who has literally tried everything without finding the answers she's looking for.
    • Anyone lacking the time, money, resources, or location to make seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist feasible.
    • A mother who just doesn't like talking about her body. To anyone. You still deserve the very best information.

  • Who this program is NOT for:

    • Those with the primary goal of weight loss. This program is about movement and exercise. It is not about nutrition.
    • Someone who wants the 1:1 guidance of a pelvic floor physical therapist. There is no substitute for the physical presence of an expert.
    • Anyone looking for plug-and-play exercises. Instead, this program involves learning about your own specific needs. As your understanding evolves, so will your program.

You deserve to feel strong and confident again.

No one knows your body like you. This program will give you all the tools for success with no extra purchase required. With your monthly subscription, you get immediate 24/7 access to all 7 modules on any device. You can join in the Facebook group or post video for help problem solving. If you don't feel like sharing, you'll have email contact with a physical therapist for your personal questions.

You CAN finally put an end to the pain, the pregnancy questions, or the body that doesn't feel like your own. This is NOT the cost of motherhood, and you don't have to "deal with it." Today, you can start the journey back to feeling like the capable, resilient mama you know you are. You CAN be as strong as you were before babies. In fact, you can be stronger.
