Annie Kocher, CD, is a bilingual (English & German), internationally certified doula providing perinatal companionship to families in Berlin since moving their practice from New York in 2015. Their compassionate, evidence-based, queer inclusive services include birth companionship, postpartum care, and ritual work. As a doula, they combine advanced physiological knowledge of fertility, pregnancy, birth and nursing with intuition and spiritual awareness. Annie practice is founded in a reverence for birthing people, respect for radical vulnerability, passion for creating safe spaces, and appreciation of unconventional, queer and non-binary experiences of parenting. Their work is based on anti-oppressive framework in which they prioritize slowness, awareness, connection, integration, and other pre- patriarchal ways of being. A deep love for newborns and their needs and languages was a huge part of what drew Annie to doula work in the first place. Having cared for newborns and newborn families for over ten years, they are excited to share their knowledge and experience with other caregivers through this course.
