Meet Doula, Midwife, and River Valley Birth Center Founder Erika Urban

2006 Graduate of the Diploma in Herbal Studies


Erika's dream of a career in the healthcare industry began at ACHS. In 2004 she received her Certificate in Nutrition, Bodycare, and Herbalism and went on to become a Master Herbalist by graduating from the Diploma in Herbal Studies program in 2006.

"This was one of the first steps I took in my path to working in the healthcare field. I went on to become a doula and then a midwife. In 2014, I opened a freestanding birth center in South Central Minnesota. My training from ACHS has been extremely helpful as I regularly use herbal remedies during pregnancy and postpartum time."

Erika strongly believes that midwifery care focuses on holistic health and wellness.
