About the Founder

I’m Tracy Donegan, Midwife, Author and Founder of GentleBirth. When I launched GentleBirth in 2006 I had no idea how much my approach would resonate with parents and birth professionals around the world.

I look forward to supporting you as you complete your CBE certification and develop your unique style of teaching as an Ambassador for positive birth in your community.

Learn at your own pace.

What Our Instructors Say:

I really enjoyed learning about the brain, and how it can be intentionally sculpted. I really appreciate the open-mindedness of GentleBirth, the acknowledgement that a positive birth is definined by the mother and that GentleBirth can be helpful in all circumstances.

Brenda Baar - USA

I absolutely loved the content and how it was delivered! The support was excellent and very prompt! The patience and caring was so appreciated! Thanks again Tracy!!! One of the best things I have ever done!

Janice Miles - Canada

Tracy’s passion, knowledge and skill shines through in every video and in how supportive she is when reached out to. 

Karolina Barwinski - USA

I love how active Tracy is in the day to day learning of the students. In all of the training I have done this was the first time I have even had an Instructor reach out to see if there was anything she could do to help. Just a great way to make your students feel like their success is important.

Mandy Reynaud - Canada

It was great to be able to dip in and out of the training at my own pace and rewind/review modules if necessary. I also loved the fact that there was always help at hand, with any queries being dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Lara Dunlea – Ireland

Being able to pop in an out to the office and take one video/module at a time made my training very achievable. I loved the mix of learning styles - lecture, documentaries, animations, demonstrations, talks. I would not class myself as a very academic person but I found myself very engaged in the whole program.

Shelly O'Halloran - Ireland

Mindfulness & Meditation

There was so much that I loved about this course. It was nice having various learning elements incorporated. I also really enjoyed how emphasized it was for the Instructors to really practice mindfulness. This is a crucial tool for both parents AND Instructors to utilize.
