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 completed 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 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.
