Dr. Joshua Ledbetter, DC
Dr. Josh received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta, GA. He is a member of the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA). He began practicing in Pasco County shortly after graduation.
After years of suffering from sports injuries and headaches, Dr. Josh’s wife convinced him to visit a chiropractor dedicated to family wellness. With regular adjustments and modification of his daily activities, he did not only receive relief from his headaches and pain, he surprisingly improved his quality of life.
After his “aha moment” of what chiropractic care is really about, his chiropractor encouraged him in his career change. He desires to help his patients achieve a higher quality of living—not merely to keep them from pain or illness.
Khamissa Keita, LM
Khamissa Keita grew up in Africa and witnessed at a very young age the process of natural childbirth by strong and powerful women, who, by deciding their way of childbirth, had shaped their society. She believes that, with the right support and empathy, midwives can offer this experience to every pregnant mom.
She is a trained midwife from Germany. Khamissa graduated from the university “Otto von Guericke” in Magdeburg and received her midwife license in 1997. She has worked as a midwife, as well as a teacher, at the midwifery school of the same university for many years. In 2010, she received her Masters of Medical Education from the University of Berlin and has been teaching midwife students and other medical professionals, in addition to practicing as a midwife.
In 2014, Khamissa moved to Florida with her daughter and completed a four-month program licensing by endorsement at Commonsense Childbirth School of Midwifery in Orlando. Khamissa is fluent in French, German, and Bambara.
She considers herself an advocate for natural approaches to pregnancy and birth: self-determination, education, empowerment, and moral support of families as well as diversity in cultural and family structures.
Tish Browning, LPN, RDMS
Tish is compassionate in women’s health, especially in OB. She has worked in OB/GYN for the past 21 years. In 2006, after working at an OB/GYN medical office for 5 years, she decided to go to school to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN) with the goal in mind of becoming an RN and work as a labor & delivery nurse.
As she continued to work as an LPN in the OB/GYN medical office for 14 more years, her plans changed, and she made the decision to change professions. In 2020 during the pandemic, she went back to school to become a registered diagnostic medical sonographer (RDMS) at Southern Technical College and joined our team at In Due Season in May 2022.
Tish was born in Colorado and moved to Florida with her parents at the young age of 8.
When she is not providing compassionate care to our patients, she enjoys drag racing with her husband and 10yr old daughter at the local drag strips and watching football & hockey.

Evelyn is a mother of 6 who has home schooled her children. She has a true passion for natural birth. She is an aspiring midwife with an understanding of the physiology of birth and believes in the ability for the body to birth.
Heidi began her journey at In Due Season as a client through our Homebirth, VBAC program.
Finding a provider as a mom who had a previous cesarean was very difficult. After much searching and researching for such a provider, Heidi found us. She not only had a beautiful homebirth VBAC, but also found a passion for helping other women deliver as a birth assistant.
Heidi is an aspiring midwife with a passion for sharing her story and the many things she has learned on her own road to deliver naturally.
