A 5-day virtual conference filled with expert discussions on natural parenting.
First things first, you're not alone in any of this - these are healthy things to grapple with. The reality is, we’re bombarded with conflicting information every single day, from the time we wake up and take the first peak at our phones.
You see, this thing called parenthood is full of shoulds and labels, fears and baggage.
Has parenting started to feel like a set of strategies or checklists?
Has 2020 taken its toll leaving you feeling tired, doubtful, overwhelmed,
and questioning your every decision?
Do you often feel alone and left wondering if what you’re being told is the ‘right’ way after all?
But if you’ve been around Raised Good for a while, you know what I share isn’t about parenting “advice”. It’s about learning how to truly be in a relationship with our children and to realise that’s all parenting is. And it’s one that changes us if we’re brave enough to surrender to the unknown and show up in all our imperfection.
You’ve discovered a vibrant community made up of diverse individuals, not singularly dependent on a rigid right-or-wrong way of thinking. (And let’s be honest, community is something we could all use more of in 2020.) We’re parents like you, finding our footing, forging our place in the world, and teaching our children how to do the same.
The truth is, you don’t need to ‘find’ the answers. You are the answer. Which is why parenting is often about healing and transforming ourselves - stepping into our power and innate wisdom as women - as parents - and becoming strong leaders. For ourselves, for our children, and for those around us.
These speakers are the mentors who’ve been sitting on my bookshelf since I became a mama. They are the men and women I turn to when I don't know what to do as a parent. They’re the incredible humans I've watched speak on stages and whose courses I've taken. I’m deeply honoured to have shared such personal conversations with each speaker and now, I’m humbled to be able to share them all with you.
So get ready for some vulnerability and authenticity. Get ready to laugh and cry. Get ready to learn and evolve.
And as you listen, know this:

Each interview covers a slightly different topic but focuses on these life-giving themes of natural parenting and is designed to make you feel like you’re sitting at the table with us; parent to parent.
At its core, natural parenting is centred on parenting through the power of relationship with the acknowledgment that as adults, we’re never finished. We can grow and evolve alongside our children on this shared journey.
The term “natural parenting” isn’t intended to disrespect or alienate any single or opposing way of raising a child. It simply reflects some notion of this being the way we used to parent before culture and society started telling us otherwise.
Parenting is monumentally challenging – especially in the absence of a village. But, Mother Nature didn’t design it to be impossible and although she didn’t give us an instruction manual to read, she gave us children to follow, to attune to, to surrender to, and to dance through life with.
I’m Tracy - a writer, advocate, and adventure-seeking wife & mum based in Vancouver. Having our son opened my eyes and changed our lives in so many ways. Immediately confronted with the pressures and assumptions others placed on us as new parents, I dove in, did my research, and began sharing it with others. I’m still on that path today.
Through the Raised Good blog, and now - The Raised Good Virtual Summit - I help fellow mamas like you increase your confidence so you can make conscious choices that feel right for your family while strengthening you & your child’s connection. Together, we’re reclaiming the wonder of motherhood and the joy of childhood, one parenting decision at a time.
You have taught me to trust myself when it comes to my baby! That is such a valuable thing. Instead of living in fear and doubt, [I’ve learn to go with] what I instinctively knew to be right. Thank you. Stumbling upon your website is one of the best things to happen to me since the baby came. Keep up the good work! You have made it into a ministry.

You are an absolute inspiration in every walk of life. Your book is keeping me warm during the days that are harder and when I question it all. And your personal posts on Instagram keep me confident to stay honest and vulnerable. I feel like shutting down so often with fear and feeling uncomfortable, but also desperate to share my words and a voice to others that may feel the same. To really connect. And you have done all of those things for me, as well as to give me a real confidence boost that I have never had from anywhere else.

Tracy, I cannot stress enough how much I needed you, your book, The Lost Art of Natural Parenting and the tribe you have created in my life! As a millennial first time mother, there are a lot of trends and ridiculous ideas out there, not to mention that the information available is both overwhelming and inconsistent. So, when I knew in my heart that I wanted to practice natural parenting - you have and continue to help me define that. You roused my instincts into action and brought together a tribe that’s invaluable. [...] This is my go-to and most supportive tribe that I’m lucky to be a part of. The book was amazing and helped me understand what I was looking for out there but couldn’t find.
