Health: Dolphins help pregnant women in Peru

Dolphins are being used in Peru to help pregnant women. Apparently "Dolphin Therapy" has positive effects for both mother and child by stimulating the mental growth of the foetus and relaxing mum.

The dolphins respond to the calls by their trainers and emit their songs close to the mother's tummies. According to those who have participated, the effects have been very beneficial.
