What People Say About Dr. Cynthia Fretwell, MD
Reply
For the 3 minutes I interacted with her during my birth, she was condescending and tried to force me to consent to unnecessary steps using fear tactics. She told me, 1 hour after water broke, that I had to use pitocin to speed things along because there was a "time limit" - after I had her confirm that the "limit" generally accepted in the US is 24 hours, she audibly scoffed and left. And I never saw her again. An hour later I was ready to push, eventually a few interns/residents came in.
