Elise Faith is excited to join the CWC Ashburn team as our first Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM). Elise graduated with a Masters of Science from Frontier Nursing University and earned her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from The Ohio State University. As a Registered Nurse she worked in various medical and surgical acute care settings for 7 years. Her midwifery training included an inner-city health center, a large hospital, a free-standing birth center, and a home birth practice. In her 8 years as a Certified Nurse Midwife, she has worked in both a high-risk OBGYN practice and most recently as a Hospitalist. Elise believes every woman deserves a midwife, no matter where their life leads them.
She strives to help educate her patients about their health, their care options, and empower them to advocate for themselves. She believes that the best way to serve women and their families in pregnancy and birth is with midwifery care, shared decision making, and the availability of a physician team when needed. She has a special interest in breastfeeding and postpartum depression support. Additionally, Elise can provide annual wellness exams, treat gynecological problems, prescribe birth control, and perform Pap smears. She and her husband, Zeeshan, recently relocated to Waterford Virginia and enjoy spending time with their 2 kids, Eliza and Zaydan, and their pup Bella.
