Get your buns in the oven!
You can host a tea party, cake sale or coffee morning, invite your friends, family and colleagues to join you and ask them to make a small donation. Be creative – last year we had picnics in the park, university bakes and we even had a group of wonderful Muffinistas climb Snowdon and enjoy a cake at the summit!
1 in 22 women die in pregnancy and childbirth in developing countries. Having a midwife or skilled birth attendant present at birth is one of the most effective interventions to save lives. It costs, on average, just £80 a month to train a midwife so together, people here can help midwives in Africa to save the lives of mothers and their babies.
When: International Day of the Midwife is on 5th May every year so hosting a party any time in May would be great (or another time of year if that suits you better)!
More info: For your free Muffins for Midwives fundraising pack which contains everything you need for your event please fill in your details below. You can like our Facebook page or tweet us @MaternityWW and share your ideas with other Muffinista’s!
Make a donation: If you can’t host an event but would like to make a donation towards training more midwives in Africa please visit our Muffins for Midwives JustGiving Page which will be launching very soon.
Our first student midwife Lensa, whose training was sponsored by Muffins for Midwives, qualified and graduated in 2016 – read her story here!
