Peruvian Iliana Cogan, who is six months pregnant, is touched by a dolphin named Wayra during a therapy for pregnant women in Lima October 25, 2005. The therapy is supposed to stimulate the brains of the baby inside the belly, with the dolphins high-frequency sounds, to develop neuron abilities. [Reuters]

Rocio Arias, 32, right, and Patricia Pimentel, 23, show their pregnant stomachs to female dolphin 'Wayra' during a session of a special class offered in Lima's five-star Los Delfines Hotel on Friday, Oct. 21, 2005. Medical doctor Elizabeth Yalan said the energy produced by the dolphin's ultrasound calls can positively stimulate the baby's brain inside the womb. The treatment, developed by a researcher in Spain, is known as 'delfinoterapia' or 'dolphin-therapy,' Yalan said. [AP]
