  • The family are considering legal action against Woodhull Hospital

According to her family, Fields checked into NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull on Nov. 12 with a detailed birth plan, but the doula she previously worked with was off duty. Doctors eventually told Fields she needed a C-section.

Family members said Fields spoke out after the surgery and asked for medical help, but was ignored.

The hospital responded to the concerns of Fields' family, telling NY1 in a statement: “The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, and we extend our sincere condolences to those affected by this tragic loss.”

A hospital spokesperson added: “NYC Health + Hospitals has a firm commitment to providing quality, dignified, culturally responsive care to all New Yorkers, without exception.”

Fields' mother, Denene Witherspoon, said Thursday: “We haven't heard anything from the hospital, no apology, no regret, nothing. No phone calls, nothing.”

In recent days, family and friends of Christine Fields have gathered outside Woodhull as their search for answers continues.

“I want people to remember Christine Fields,” Perez said.

Fields' son is now home from the hospital with his father and siblings.
