What our community has to say:
“As a neurodivergent complex trauma survivor and community advocate, very few trainings felt like safe/brave/supportive spaces. The commitment to the relationship with themselves, their clients, and their communities is transparent whenever I engage with Cornerstone. They, and others, are holding space for new visions in birthwork and the many layers of this work. Every time I connect with someone in the community they’re curating, it is good medicine, even if it’s the hard and messy parts of birthwork that are the reason we’re connecting. I wish I had more time to engage because I know how much more there is to unlearn, learn, or relearn. It’s been a pleasure to witness and enjoy the fruit of Juli and Nickie’s labors when I log in to their course. I’m grateful to them and to everyone who supports them and their work.” - Anonymous, Touchstone cohort member, 2021.
“I can’t mention enough how incredible it feels to learn from folks who truly care and show they care about the activism that goes behind birthwork and beyond. I’ve learned, unlearned, and relearned from you, and to be in community with you is a blessing. Thank you. I feel that I’m able to be the birthworker I have always aspired myself to be in part because of the support and the guidance I’ve received not only from this training, but from the Cornerstone community, as well.”
