Elisha Immanuel

Birth Doula
Placenta Encapsulation Specialist

Elisha’s journey to birth began as a young child, when she witnessed her mother’s friend birth all three of her children at home in a metal trough tub.  She attended her first birth as a doula in 2015—a planned cesarean section.  Her response when asked about both births?  “All birth is absolutely magical.”

Elisha is a lifelong learner who is passionate about supporting families through the many paths that birth often takes us, and all of the changes that come with bringing a child into the world.  She has a deep sense of presence with her laboring clients, always making them feel important, safe, and valued.  Midwives have been known to say after a birth with Elisha (as the doula), “We’ve GOT to have her at all of our births!”.  Elisha is an energetic, fun-loving, and inspiring person who lights up the room... unless you want your birthing room dark!

Elisha lives in Quantico, MD at her nursery with her husband, their two beautiful children, and many animals.
