PushedPushed: The Painful Truth about Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care
Jennifer Block  CHS '94

ISBN-10: 0738211664
ISBN-13: 978-0738211664

A groundbreaking narrative investigation of childbirth in the age of machines, malpractice, and managed care, Pushed presents the complete picture of maternity care in America. From inside the operating room of a hospital with a 44% Cesarean rate to the living room floor of a woman who gives birth with an illegal midwife, Block exposes a system in which few women have an optimal experience. Pushed surveys the public health impact of routine labor inductions, C-sections, and epidurals, but also examines childbirth as a women's rights issue: Do women even have the right to choose a normal birth? Is that right being upheld? A wake-up call for our times, Block's gripping research reveals that while emergency obstetric care is essential, we are overusing medical technology at the expense of maternal and infant health.

The Chelmsford High Class of 1977 40th Reunion was held Saturday, June 24th. at The Radisson in Chelmsford. The reunion was organized by classmate Karen "Lebedzinski" Clements with help from Sheila "Kelly" Vaughan, Marc & Kim "Patenaude" Normandin, Debbie Milisci, Sue "Feehan" Carelli. Our amazing principal George Simonian was in attendance. The classmate who traveled the furthest was Steve Bosselman, the classmate who was the first to respond to the reunion was Karen "Hubers" Fairbanks. Our classmates danced the night away to music from 1977. What a fabulous evening, it was wonderful seeing everyone. For those who couldn't attend, we hope to see you at our 50th.
