Goddess 8 Picture

Eileithyia

Eileithyia (pronounced ay-lay-THWEE-uh) is the Greek Goddess of childbirth and midwifery. A daughter of Zeus and Hera, she is also ruler of the pain and length of labor. It appears that there were originally two Eileithyiai—one to hasten birth and one to delay it—but they were eventually conflated into one Goddess. -www.goddessaday.com/
