Ashley Baker, ARNP, CNM

Ashley attended Frontier Nursing University where she received her Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and Certified Nurse Midwifery degree, as well as currently completing her Doctorate of Nursing degree.

Ashley has been providing proficient, personalized, and evidence-based care to women and children since 2009 in many different realms. Ashley became passionate about the midwifery model of care when she realized it gave women a voice and choice about their care.

Ashley is a native to Florida, both born and raised. She’s a mother herself to 2 young boys. When not providing care to the community, Ashley enjoys being outdoors, on her family’s boat, and traveling.

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 10 year old daughter at the local drag strips and watching football & hockey.

Kendra Brown

Kendra is elated to join our team as our Office Manager. She is a mother of two boys and is passionate about holistic family wellness. She has a faith-based approach to managing both her family and her role here at In Due Season.

You won’t see her bedside at your birth, but you will see her handling all those “behind the scenes” details that help things go smoothly in our office.

Joining us in March 2022, she is ecstatic to assist in the incredible journey of pregnancy and wellness for all of our clients.

Asia McGlinchey, BA

Asia McGlinchey is a happily married mother of three beautiful girls who delivered her youngest daughter with us here at In Due Season. Inspired by the care she received and her delivery experience at the Birth Center, she decided to pursue a career that would allow her to provide that same care to other women as they experience the miraculous work of childbirth. Asia has worked with us as a Birth Assistant since 2022 and has dreams of becoming a licensed Midwife in the near future

Kelly Bishop, BA

Kelly is one of our newest birth assistants at In Due Season. She came to us first as a client back in July 2021 and as an employee in November 2022. She’s been married to her husband Justin for 17 years and has 2 children Brody and Zinnia Mae; her first being born by c-section in 2008-she understands the toll it can take on postpartum recovery and has since approached pregnancy in a more natural and holistic way.

Suffering infertility issues for years, she was surprised with an unplanned pregnancy in the summer of 2021 and went on to have a very successful and quick homebirth in March 2022. Our very own midwife Khamissa was there to help her daughter Earthside in the family bathtub. After experiencing the power of natural birth and the importance of a trustworthy birth team, Kelly dreamed of being able to help other women on their journey to motherhood.

At her 6 week postpartum visit Kelly expressed her wishes to be involved in the birth world to midwife Lucie and she offered Kelly a place on the team as a birth assistant.. The rest is history.

She stepped into her position when Zinnia Mae was just 8 months old. She is now a valued member of the IDS team.  She absolutely has embraced everything birth and she will be your biggest support before, during, and after your labor. She’s a self-proclaimed birth nerd and desperately wants to help you on your journey. From verbal affirmations, to applying counter pressure, to holding a leg or reminding you of your power, Kelly is ready and willing to go the distance with you!
