Meet new Midwife Center board members

The Midwife Center would like to welcome the following individuals to its board of directors:

Nancy Eligator, MD

Nancy is a gynecologist at Montefiore in the General Internal Medicine Program. She is a part of the Women’s Health Group there where she cares for women of all ages starting at age 16. She also teaches residents and medical students as part of the training program there. Nancy is from Pittsburgh and has two children in college. She is honored to be a new member on the board of the Midwife Center.

“I have always had a strong connection to women's health care and I feel very strongly that women should have many options in our access to care. The Midwife Center provides incredibly high quality care to women in a comfortable, beautiful environment. The services provided by TMC are comprehensive, diverse and thoughtful. I am proud to donate my time to the board of the TMC.”

Renae Green, CLC

Renae is the Program Manager for the Healthy Start Center for Urban Breastfeeding program. She is also completing her BS in Maternal Child Health: Human Lactation through Union Institute & University. In her free time, Renae loves to quilt, watch comedy, and spend time with her little one. Renae formerly worked as the Community Engagement Coordinator at The Midwife Center and is delighted to now devote her time serving on the board.

“The Midwife Center is a place I hold dear to my heart, birthing many babies – including my passion. This will forever be the birthplace of my life’s work and I am overjoyed to continue exposing community members and upcoming birth workers to this safe space.”

Kate Harris

Kate is a National Board Certified teacher who teaches Social Studies at Pittsburgh CAPA 6-12, in Pittsburgh, PA. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and exploring Pittsburgh's parks with her husband, son, and their dog. She has served on the Let Them Eat Cake event planning committee for the last two years and will continue to help plan the event as a board member. She is looking forward to serving on the board of The Midwife Center, where her son was born, and to promoting an organization that listens to and empowers women and families as they navigate their healthcare needs.

Nancy A. Parker, Esq.

Nancy is an Assistant General Counsel for the United Steelworkers International Union where she represents the Union and primarily focuses on labor law. Upon graduating from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, she moved to Pittsburgh with her husband and in her spare time can be found playing basketball and taking boxing classes. She has one daughter whose birth journey began at The Midwife Center before medically needing to be transferred out. She is proud to serve on the board of TMC as a necessary voice in the discourse around the staggering high maternal and infant mortality rate in the African American community, and seeks to aid in addressing and improving these outcomes.

Farewell to outgoing board members

The Midwife Center would like the thank Jen Cox-Siegel and Tom Hardy who served two terms on the board. They both served on the operations committee and as board officers. Jen and Tom provided valuable contributions to the planning and execution of The Midwife Center's expansion project.
