Sally Ashton-May, Trustee
I am a practising midwife with 24 years’ experience in clinical practice. I have 16 years senior operational and managerial experience in Maternity Services, with part of this managing a women’s counselling service in a large London Trust. I have been fortunate enough to work as both a midwife and a manager in services that have provided expert support for women that have experienced loss and trauma but I currently provide consultancy services for NHS England and Health Education England working on a variety of maternity related projects and am aware of many areas where this very important element of care is not available.
I am proud to be a trustee of Petals and to be able to be a part of an organisation that delivers an excellent, specialist counselling service to many women who otherwise may not have access to this essential support at such a difficult time in their lives.
