Ace provides individualized care that focuses on pregnancy and birth as an important time of transition and is passionate about your right to be supported in your choices. Her care is evidence-informed and relationship-based.
Pregnancy, childbirth and your first weeks with your new little one have the potential to bring both joys and challenges. Midwifery is the honour of helping you navigate these and prepare for birth, in all its variety and complexity. Ace looks forward to supporting you and your family on this journey. She enjoys caring for a diversity of families, including those who may experience marginalization when accessing health care or those building their families in unique and creative ways.
A 2013 graduate of the University of British Columbia’s Midwifery Education Program, Ace has a previous Combined Honours degree in International Development and Gender Studies from Dalhousie University. In addition to English, she speaks some Spanish and French. As a clinical assistant professor for the UBC Midwifery Education Program, she is involved with training new midwives. Ace specializes in contraceptive counselling and prescribing as well as being a trained surgical assistant. Before being called to midwifery, Ace worked as a research assistant, volunteered for feminist organizations and spent time as a personal care-aid in Halifax.
When Ace isn’t welcoming babies, she enjoys the company of her partner, close friends and two kids. She can be found knitting, gardening, camping, X-country skiing, paddle boarding, dancing, cooking and, from time to time, enjoying a nice long nap between births!
Rosalynd Curry came to Kamloops in 2009 as a midwifery student during her final year of schooling at the University of British Columbia. She started working as a midwife here in 2010 after falling for the beautiful landscape, community, and easy access to outdoor activities. Since moving to Kamloops, Rosalynd has started her own family. She now works part-time and balances her love of midwifery with the demands of a partner and two busy boys!
Prior to becoming a midwife, Rosalynd did a degree in biology and psychology. When her friends started having children, her love of babies evolved into an intense interest in maternity care and in supporting families through the exciting transitions involved in pregnancy, birth, and early postpartum. Midwifery became an obvious career path. Her passion for midwifery is centered on providing information and choice and in supporting pregnancy and birth as normal, healthy life events. She finds a special fulfillment in witnessing the transformation of roles; from individual to parent, only children to siblings, partnerships to families.
Outside of work, Rosalynd loves spending time outdoors – skiing, rock climbing, biking, hiking, paddle boarding, and gardening; and, of course, her dominant indoor activity of being a very prolific knitter.
