Instead of making all sorts of resolutions (& subsequently breaking them), I resolve to just... maintain. In our busy lives, let's face it... maintaining can be a feat in itself. Keeping organized, getting work done, being a present mother/wife/friend can be a challenge with the many distractions of, well, life. I'd also like to carve out a little time to prioritize myself (insert self-imposed guilt here). As mothers, it feels completely normal & expected to put everyone else first, but the fact is, if mama isn't feeling great or is stretching herself too thin, it's not good for anyone.
So, what does a busy mom, who has no time to dry her hair let alone visit the doctor, do? She makes her health & her family's well being a priority with Pager. This newly launched "doctors on demand" start-up (have you seen the ads on the subway?) is reinventing the traditional doctor house call with a location-based mobile marketplace in San Francisco & right here in NYC. Through Pager, board-certified doctors can treat a wide variety of primary and urgent care issues, all in the patient's home, office or hotel. Services also include preventative care like health checks & flu shots. If you don't need an actual visit, you can also call or text medical questions with on-call nurses & doctors.
With cold & flu season upon us, I realized everyone in my lil' family has had the flu shot but me. I haven't even gotten it the last couple of years because I simply didn't make myself a priority. I decided to try out Pager with this service & can wholeheartedly say it was the easiest process ever. I booked a nurse through the app (which took all of 5 minutes to download, set up & make actual appointment), & she showed up the very next day at my doorstep. And just to point out, I was in my slippers the whole time.
If you'd like to try out Pager for an in-home visit or consultation over the phone this month, I have some good news. With code BABYMEETSCITY, you can try a Pager service for free until January 31st.
