In this June 20, 2017 photo, midwife Ana Choque massages the feet of Mariana Limachi two weeks after delivering Limachi's first child at her home in El Alto, Bolivia. Maternal deaths in Bolivia are concentrated among poor, rural indigenous women. Critics say Bolivia's public health centers and hospitals in rural areas often lack beds, doctors and medicines. "An equally important factor is the fact that indigenous women who have managed to get to clinics have often been treated as second-class citizens, scorned because of their gender, their ethnicity and their traditions," the U.N. body said in a 2009 report.
