Traditional healer Bi Mwanahija Mzee 56, massages pregnant patient Maryam Juma, 29, in Zanzibar City, Tanzania, February 2, 2019. This is Maryam's fifth pregnancy after three miscarriages and one stillborn. Both she and the healer believe the reason is because the children in the uterus were possessed by supernatural sprits like djinns. Maryam comes to Bi Mwanahija Mzee for reassurance, herbs and prayers that this baby will survive. REUTERS/Nicky Woo SEARCH "TANZANIA HEALTH" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Fafa, a lioness that is nearly 18-year-old, undergoes a CT scan at the veterinary clinic in Brasili
Fafa, a lioness that is nearly 18-year-old, undergoes a CT scan at the veterinary clinic in Brasilia August 7, 2012. Fafa has been living in Brasilia Zoo since its birth and had undergone surgery this year to remove both its ovaries and uterus. Fafa was sedated and brought to the veterinary clinic after experiencing seizures and bleeding. According to veterinarian John Nardott Ricardo, the lioness had to undergo a 3-hour-long session of CT scans to its chest, skull and abdomen in order to diagnose the source of its health problems. Nardott believes there is a possibility that Fafa has liver damage, which may have arisen from a cancerous tumour Fafa had in 2010. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino (BRAZIL - Tags: ANIMALS SOCIETY)

Budapest Zoo's oldest gorilla Liesel's arm and hand are seen during an operation in Budapest January 15, 2009. The surgery became necessary due to the progress of a tumour, which could cause the death of the ape. During the three-hour long intervention, doctors for humans, with assistance from the zoo's veterinarians, checked the 32-year-old female, lowland gorilla's fibroids in its uterus, which are anatomically very similar to the human body. Surgery on gorillas is extremely rare, and this was the first time that this kind of intervention was necessary in Hungary. Picture taken January 15, 2009. REUTERS/Pool (HUNGARY)

Belempampa is one of many clinics in Peru that have started to allow women to give birth on their feet, instead of having women lie on their backs to deliver as in most developed countries. Standing or sitting during childbirth, ancient positions that are even depicted on ancient Andean pottery, helps to reduce pressure on the uterus and increase the oxygen flow to the fetus, while reducing labor and delivery time, according to the Peruvian health ministry.
