    My husband started going once a week for 2 hours late in the evening and wondered where he could be. After about a month, he moved out of our house with his everything yet we had plans of taking him to my parents as soon as have given birth. I struggled with the pregnancy on my own for almost a month. Time reached I had to give birth to my cute son But it was really a tuff experience because my husband wasn’t there… I had to be strong and to be home by my self taking care of the baby. My friends were visiting on a daily basis..thanks to them. And just one I told about my problems because she saw I wasn’t happy at all…We sat talked for almost 4hours…She said to me, Rose you shouldn’t blame your husband so much because Our men are bewitched by other ladies most times.
    She advised me to contact this wonderful lady called Mama Lesedi +27671691668 for help…I didn’t contact Her in the first place because I was nervous but this pain I was going through held me to grab my phone and call her…She was too lovely and made me feel like a sister.
