Heather Booth as Eileithyia
Eileithyia is known as the Greek Goddess of childbirth and midwifery in ancient Greek mythology. The Goddess was present for the birth of Athena from the head of Zeus, and was present for the yearly birth of the divine child throughout Greece. Associated with the three Fates: Spinner, Allotter and Inflexible, she was considered sitting beside them, as the “Clever Spinner.” Often shown in art with flames, depicting bringing children into the light and the pains of childbirth. Eileithyia once turned a maiden into a polecat, annoyed with her betrayal, which allowed Hercules to be born. Revered and worshiped for her care of mothers and guidance for midwives and through childbirth, she sometimes appears multiplied, as the Eileithyiai.
