A core understanding of child development and rest easy in allowing the space for it to unfold

A newfound confidence in your own abilities as a parent - even as a new parent

The awareness to become led by intuition and practice it daily

The education and research to back up your desire to parent as nature intended

Factual insight to help you navigate challenging aspects of motherhood like sleep, breastfeeding, and discipline

An appreciation for play, adventure, and simplifying childhood

A community that reminds you you’re not alone in creating your own path


The Raised Good online Summit features an all-star line-up of widely respected experts and fellow parents.

Each topic features a conversation-style interview with me, Tracy, the founder and mama behind Raised Good. These are open-hearted, relatable, and actionable discussions offering an array of ideas and perspectives - all in one place. Many of our speakers provide regular free education through their own blogs, podcasts, or published books, yet they are generously sharing insights and stories with the Raised Good audience that you can’t find anywhere else.

This is not a declaration but a conversation; a chance to learn and unlearn, to acknowledge life’s complexities and fight for its simplicities, to be both curious and confident, and to embrace our version of parenthood as it is - not what we're told it should be.

The Summit features 30 interviews filled with expert
discussions on natural parenting.



30 full length videos to watch and share with your family. You’ll be able to refer back to these videos in the future or for a refresh on your favourite natural parenting topics.


30 Audio MP3 files so that you can listen on the go, in the car, while you’re contact-napping with your toddler or preparing dinner.


Wish you had a notebook to quickly jot down the best parts from each conversation? Now you do. A notebook to note down your top take-home messages from each conversation.



As many of our speakers are authors as well, I’ve compiled a list of books, by topic, so you can learn more from your favorite speakers and go even deeper



Carry a beautiful reminder of the Summit with you with one of our custom-designed wallpapers for your phone, tablet, or desktop.

I believe that it is our job to tune into our motherly intuition, as faint of a voice as it may be at first, and understand why we choose to make the decisions that we do. 

From the Mama Tribe

What Raised Good Readers Are Saying

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.

- Jessica Shephard

“Stumbling on your website is one of the best things to happen to me since the baby came.” 

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.

- Charlotte Wise

“Your book is keeping me warm during the days that are harder and when I question it all.”

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. 

- Monika Bobby

“You roused my instincts into action and brought together a tribe that’s invaluable.”


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.

Hi friend!

Tracy Gillett

Led by yours truly,

Interested...but have questions?



Let’s See If It’s Been Answered Here...

Have Questions?

The Summit is a good fit for you if:

You’re in the process of trying to get pregnant or already pregnant.
You're a new mother, father, primary caregiver, grandparent, teacher, nanny...basically, if you have a child in your life, this summit is for you.
You have 1 or more children between the ages of 1 and 10 years old - (Parents with older children are certainly welcome to attend, however most of the conversations are predominantly relevant for parenting children from birth to 10 years old.)
You’re exploring “natural parenting” and want to decide for yourself what your parenting journey will look like. 

How do I know if the Raised Good Virtual Summit is right for me?

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.

It’s about being aware - being conscious of your decisions - not just parenting on auto-pilot or based on what you’ve been told by others.

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.

What do you mean by natural parenting?

You certainly don’t have to, which is why there’s a completely free option to attend from October 15th-19th. And yes, the internet is full of resources, including those by many of our speakers. However, this event has been carefully and thoughtfully compiled to bring you honest dialogue from thought-leaders and experts here to see you step into your fullest, happiest, and most confident role as a parent. With content from more than 25 speakers, compiled for you all in one place, this summit that can become your go-to for years to come. 

Do I really need to spend money on something like this right now? Can’t I get all of this from blogs, podcasts, or other conferences?

We’ve put together a very long and robust line-up of speakers - making the Summit an online conference with incredible value. I’ve also created an environment for open, honest and vulnerable dialogue. Not a robotic, lecture-style conference that leaves you feeling more inadequate or in need of encouragement than before you registered. Raised Good has also grown to a blog and brand with millions of readers worldwide because of its commitment to in-depth research, idea-sharing, and true connection.

How is this Summit different from other online conferences?

All you need is an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to watch the videos. You can download the audio versions and listen while you put your phone on flight mode. There will not, however, be a written or transcripted format at this time.

What do I need to tune in?
