Anne Napatalung

Ph.D.

Director of National Resources

Anne is a founding member of WIDOCC who is passionate about postpartum, elder, hospice, and womb care, sexual health education, and the erotic arts. Her practices are rooted in healing through herbs, food, and bodywork and destigmatizing reproductive processes and pleasure. She is three times certified in Thai Traditional Womblifting and Herbal Therapies from the Baan Hom Samunphrai School in Chiang Mai Thailand where she studied from 2017-2021. She completed full circle doula training through International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC), birth doula training through Doulas of North America (DONA) and is Level II Reiki certified with an emphasis on doula care. She is grateful for the teachers who initiated her into birthwork—Panquetzani Ticitl, Shafia Monroe, and Homprang Chaleekanha. As a post-doctoral fellow at UCLA her research focuses on reproductive justice and sexual healing, Black and Indigenous midwives and prison abolition (from Alabama to Haiti to Palestine), and ways of knowing associated with the body, the senses, and bodily transitions such as birth and death. She seeks to make reproductive experiences spaces of care and dignity for every body, family, and community.

Anne is based in Los Angeles, CA.
