Who is Ilithyia?
EILEITHYIA (or Ilithyia) [[pronounced eh-leeth-ee-ya]] is the Goddess of childbirth & labor pains. According to some there are two Eileithyiai, one who furthers birth & one who protracts/stalls labour. Her name means "she who comes to aid" or "relieve" from the Greek word elêluthyia. Her Roman counterpart is Natio ("Birth") or Lucina ("Light bringer").
Ilithyia is usually depicted as a woman wielding a torch, representing the burning pains of childbirth, or with her arms raised in the air to bring the child to the light. She is closely identified with the Goddesses Hera & Artemis, both of whom bore epithets of her name.
Her widespread cult is described on the Cult of Eileithyia page.
