Feinstein Fellowships Alumni Spotlight: Selena Eisenberg

The Jewish Healthcare Foundation's Fellowship Alumni Spotlight series showcases some of the many incredible alumni of the Feinstein Fellowships. 

Selena Eisenberg is a traditional midwife, founder of Igi Osè - Traditional Birth Services, and an alumna of the Salk Health Activist Fellowship and Patient Safety Fellowship. Her mission is to support birthing people and to improve outcomes in home and hospital settings. Her journey to becoming a midwife was not straight forward one, but the result of studying birth in different capacities for over 16 years, providing her with a unique perspective in birthing spaces.

Selena is the current CEO of The Pittsburgh Birth Project, whose mission is to support birth choices by providing financial privilege to those who would otherwise have limited options for their birth. She is a recent participant in the Jewish Healthcare Foundation's Perinatal Health Equity Champion program, a convening of community birth workers and hospital representatives to learn and join forces to improve the outcomes of Black birthing people in Allegheny County. Selena has also created a program to support hospital team members who wish to be more welcoming and accepting by teaching them how to leverage community birth attendants who serve their patients.
