Bacolod's Freelancers Hub: Dojo 8 Coliving Space

Image
Coworking spaces are very important to freelancers like me. If you are not so sure what I am talking about, a coworking space is a place with a shared working environment like an office or something like a study area at home. The only difference is that the people using it are usually not employed by the same company or organization.  Though there are a lot of variations in terms of the ambiance or atmosphere, a strong and fast internet connection, as well as a reliable generator (in case of power outages), are constant in coworking spaces.

With various treatments, medications and different doctors consulted, we have learned this lesson the hard way -- a woman's overall well-being is a key to a successful pregnancy.  Women have the tendency to shrug off minor health problems and just see a medical practitioner when things go bad. We should stop doing this and instead we make sure that we are taken cared of. Keep in mind that prevention will always be better than cure.  It is very important that our health should be a top priority and that women need  superior medical service.  Thus, we are happy to share that ManilaMed's Center for Women’s Health champions this advocacy where every women’s health issues are not left behind.  As one of the institution’s Center of Excellence, it provides top medical offerings from experienced medical professionals to cater women in all their life stages---
