Testimony of a mother:
My first childbirth was particularly difficult, so I decided to go see Rafaele for the second.
The session was not only smooth and relaxing, but Rafaele also gave me back my confidence.
The miracle took place two weeks later.
I had a dream birth, my body was ready to give birth thanks to your fairy hands.
Your donation allows you to work miracles, and we feel that it's not just a job: it's a passion.
I thank G.od for having known you, and I will never forget my wonderful childbirth because of you.
