We are new age tech savvy, digitally driven women living in a super fast world. Though we are connected all the time through social media and apps, research says that women of this age are more lonely than ever. Work pressure, child rearing, career aspirations and many more have taken away from women of this age time to bond, share, laugh and communicate.
The above story is very much true in my case. I am a mother to two daughters, a blogger, data scientist, home maker and many more. In the process of trying to excel in all these roles (I emphasize the word trying…I am no superwoman) I fail to connect with my friends and do not know whom to turn to when I need some guidance in maintaining good health. So I thought I must find a good online platform that can play the role of my health counselor.
My search stopped at Sheroes. SHEROES is a secure growth and networking platform exclusively for aspiring women who want more from life. Through digital way and offline medium, SHEROES helps women in overall growth. The fact that 3 million women uses Sheroes to connect, share and grow is enough to prove that this platform is ideal for a woman like me. So I went ahead and joined their Health community group.
As a Health community member I get the following benefits:
- Ability to connect to women of my age at any time of the day
This is the best thing I must say. At any time of the day we come across a health problem, whether its pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, newborn care, midlife health, breast health, fertility, pelvic health related, just type the question and we will have members of the group sharing their answers, opinions right away. This is really helpful and all the more can be followed with trust, as people share the suggestions and opinions based on their own firsthand experience
- Get to hear from experts and doctors
It’s just not peers who respond to the question, but doctors and experts are part of this group and they step in to give their suggestions. I found this really beneficial, as I was able to get views from an expert, without spending a penny and without stepping out of my house !!
- Option to communicate by staying as anonymous
As women we face many health issues. A lot we are hesitant to ask, thinking what others might think. Sheroes understood this need of women and has given the option to post your question as anonymous. Voila ! post all your questions related to sexual wellness, menstrual problems and pregnancy issues and get answers from experts and experienced women.
- Option to ask questions privately
This is another great feature. There are moments in life or situations in life where we find ourselves alone. What we need would be a person to share our problem or agony. Sheroes gives an option to talk to SHEROES counsellor in private.
- If you have your phone with you, then you will have Sheroes Health community with you
