Celebrate National Midwifery Week with free cupcakes on Friday

For the fourth year in a row, the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing will celebrate National Midwifery Week by giving away 1,000 mini cupcakes—one cupcake for every 10 babies born annually into the hands of certified nurse midwives in Ohio.

The cupcakes, supplied by Main Street Cupcakes, will be made from wedding cake batter with vanilla pink and blue frosting and pink and blue sprinkles.

The event will be held Friday, Oct. 9, beginning at 11 a.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center. The event has moved due to inclement weather.

Cupcakes are on a first come, first serve basis.

National Midwifery Week was created by the American College of Nurse-Midwives to celebrate and recognize midwives and midwife-led care.​
