Joseph Urban is a co-owner of the birth center and also does our property management. Joe is quite active in the day-to-day operations and decisions of River Valley Birth Center, not including the clinical side. Since he is married to a midwife (Erika), he understands pregnancy and birth quite well, but his talents and interests keep him busy with our technology, equipment, building safety, and building maintenance. Joe is also fully certified in CPR and neonatal resuscitation (NRP).
When he is not changing lightbulbs or fixing water leaks, Joe works full time for the Mankato School District in their Information Technology department. When not working at either job, Joe stays very active as a parent of 4 children. He is involved in community and currently a Planning Commission member for the City of St Peter and is the Nicollet County Historical Society board president. He also spends a good amount of time fixing up the family home in St Peter, room by room.
