Meet the Doulas: Angelique Saavedra

Who are the doulas who volunteer with the Bay Area Doula Project?  They’re amazing, diverse people, doing so much great work in the world, it’s hard to believe any of them has time to volunteer with us. We’ve been using this space to introduce you to many of the BADP doulas.  This week, meet Angelique Saavedra.

Angelique is a birth mother who is passionate about reproductive justice. Inspired by her own pregnancy and adoption journey, Angelique is committed to creating a world where all people with experiences across the reproductive spectrum are able to receive non-judgmental and compassionate care. She is currently a volunteer with the Bay Area Doula Project supporting the coordination of monthly events and additionally volunteers as a Post Abortion Talkline counselor. She received a BA in Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley and studied International Development at the University of Oxford’s Exeter College.
