Life with Every Mother: Where Are They Now?

At Every Mother, we celebrate our members at every stage of their journey. We know firsthand that progress is so much more than meets the eye. So in honor of Diastasis Recti Awareness Month, we reconnected with 7 of our featured members to find out how Every Mother changed their lives—physically, mentally, and emotionally—and to hear some stories they didn’t share the first time around.

Connect online with other women training in the EMbody program, and enjoy expert guidance in prenatal and postnatal fitness in the Every Mother Village. Join today!


What were the physical/measurable changes that resulted from following Every Mother?

I went from a deep 4 finger separation to under 1. I wear a bikini confidently and feel strong. 

Since working out with EM, what ongoing lifestyle changes have you noticed? 

I have been able to move up to stronger workouts/weight lifting, and I know how to ensure I’m being safe. I feel good about my body, and I don’t have back pain. 

Do you have any stories about your overall journey you’d like to share?

I tell everyone about Every Mother! I bet I’ve had at least a dozen friends sign up because (humbly) my body recovery after 4 kids is a walking testimonial that there ARE natural ways to recover from DR.


What were the physical/measurable changes that resulted from following Every Mother?

Now that my DR is mostly healed, I have better stability during my workouts, and my core is stronger.

Since working out with EM, what ongoing lifestyle changes have you noticed? 

Thanks to Every Mother, my back pain is gone, and I can take longer walks. 

Do you have any stories about your overall journey you’d like to share?

It took me over a year with a lot of ups and downs. However, consistency and patience are what brought me to my results. Even though I am not specifically on a guided path, I still utilize the workouts from the program.


What were the physical/measurable changes that resulted from following Every Mother?

Delivered baby #2, then started my EM journey with 4cm DR. Completely resolved it. Delivered baby #3 and continued with EM. After delivery, I still had no DR!!

Since working out with EM, what ongoing lifestyle changes have you noticed? 

I am fully aware of my breathing and compress my abs correctly when I lift my children, play sports, or do other things that exert energy. Every Mother is my 10-25 minutes of “me time” during the day. Even after exhausting days, I feel proud of myself for doing EM.

Do you have any stories about your overall journey you’d like to share?

Even though my DR is closed, I still really enjoy the workouts. I am not interested in “cardio” and feel very challenged and happy. EM got my core strong and got me somewhat bathing suit season ready after the delivery of my third child. I am on day 78 of Reclaim, and once I finish it, I will try Surpass!! I am very excited to feel strong enough for this challenge!


What were the physical/measurable changes that resulted from following Every Mother?

My DR went from 3cm top to bottom to a 1/2cm!

Since working out with EM, what ongoing lifestyle changes have you noticed? 

I have gotten busier with less pain in my back, but my routine is super inconsistent now. What I do love is that my Path is always there for me.

Do you have any stories about your overall journey you’d like to share?

I have been able to share my progress with friends who have signed up and also had success in their health journey. It brings me joy to see them feeling well! I also love the community at Every Mother and the various challenges; it’s such an uplifting and holistic program.


What were the physical/measurable changes that resulted from following Every Mother?

I gained strength and balance and toned various parts of my body that I didn’t think could be toned again after having babies. I’ve increased my confidence, not just because of my body but also because I reached goals I set for myself and stayed true to what I set out to do. I feel fantastic, I have lots of energy, and I feel healthy. I can run and keep up with my kids when we play outside, and I feel ready and confident going into this fourth pregnancy, knowing I can feel great throughout and after!

Since working out with EM, what ongoing lifestyle changes have you noticed? 

My lower back pain is gone, and my pelvic floor is strong and healthy (maybe even stronger than before I had any babies!). I sleep better, and I have more energy and confidence. I feel strong!

Do you have any stories about your overall journey you’d like to share?

Having the ability to work out at home in very practical time increments (about 20 minutes each) has made ALL THE DIFFERENCE for me! I am a better mom because I prioritize myself, care for myself, and heal my body. I breathe through the daily exercises – it became like a meditation for me. I always feel better after a workout.


What were the physical/measurable changes that resulted from following Every Mother?

My belly flattened SO MUCH! I lost 3.5″ off my stomach in the 12 weeks of Reclaim Light. I no longer look like I’m pregnant!!!

Since working out with EM, what ongoing lifestyle changes have you noticed? 

I feel so much more energized throughout the day, mentally and physically.

Do you have any stories about your overall journey you’d like to share?

Every Mother has transformed so many parts of my life. Most importantly, my children see me taking care of myself physically and come “do exercises” with me in the mornings. They are my little coaches! My son (4) always hands me the equipment I need (we trade so he can use whatever I’m not using), and my daughter (2) tries to do whatever Leah is doing on the screen. She will lay next to me and whisper, “tight, tighter” while I’m doing Core Compressions! 


It takes a village to raise a mother, and we are so proud of every individual in our community for their hard work and the grace they show themselves and one another. From resolution of specific health concerns to larger, long-term lifestyle changes, our members continue to amaze us, and we applaud them as they continue on their paths. And as Cynthia Beahm—EM member since 2017—reminds us, “It’s all a constant flow,” and let’s love ourselves at any and every point in the journey.


Every Mother unlocks a scientifically proven method to strengthen the body during pregnancy and rebuild it after birth, regardless of how long it has been since you became a mother. We’re a knowledge circle, a community, and a celebration— of the mother you’ve become, and the woman you’ve been all along. Learn more about the EMbody Program™ here.
