 Ilithyia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There were ancient icons of Eileithyia at Athens, one said to have been brought from Crete, according to Pausanias, who mentioned shrines to Ilithyia in Tenea and Argos, with an extremely important shrine in Aigion.
Ilithyia, along with Artemis and Persephone, is often shown carrying torches to bring children out of darkness and into light: in Roman mythology her counterpart in easing labor is Lucina ("of the light").
In Amnisos, a stalagmite in one cave was probably an icon of Ilithyia.

 Other Deities, Greek Mythology Link.
Ilithyia sends the pangs which seize a woman in childbirth, and provides the alleviation of the travail of childbirth.
Ilithyia, who is also called the mother of Love, is known for having helped Leto in her labour when she gave birth to her sweet children Apollo and Artemis, and for having been persuaded by Hera to retard Alcmena's delivery when she was about to gave birth to Heracles 1.
Artists have represented Ilithyia holding a torch, which has been thought to be her attribute because the pangs of women are like fire.

 Alcmena, Greek Mythology Link.
However, the god's wife Hera, disliking her husband's love affair with Alcmena, persuaded the goddess of childbirth Ilithyia to retard the girl's delivery, so that Eurystheus should be born first, though a seven-month child.
Ilithyia, goddess of childbirth and of frightened mothers in travail, came to Thebes when Alcmena was ready to give birth.
It is also said that the rites preventing Alcmena's deliverance were performed not by Ilithyia but by a group of witches sent by Hera, and that these left when Galanthis uttered a cry of joy in their hearing.

 Apollo   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Leto conceived twins but was hated by Hera and not allowed to give birth because Hera imprisoned Ilithyia, the goddess of childbirth.
Eventually the other gods persuaded her to let Ilithyia go and Leto gave birth to Apollo and Artemis, his twin sister.
At Delphi, Leto had tried to rest but Python, a fearsome dragon, had learned from the Oracle at Delphi that a son of Leto would kill him and sure enough Apollo came to call and killed Python (this earned him the epithet of Pythius).

In this regard too, when the speaker prays to Isis and Ilithyia, goddess of childbirth, that Corinna survive the ordeal of her recent abortion, he appears relatively indifferent to Augustus's moral project.

Ilithyia, Greek Goddess of childbirth and Echo's half-sister, appeared before them in a rage, reminding Echo that she had been cursed long ago to bear no more children because she had given Moonbiter away before he was born.
Behind Ilithyia appeared Echo's mother Hera, Queen of the Gods, and Aesculapius, the God of medicine.
Hera proposed that Echo and Blood be tested: Echo to prove that she was willing to risk her life to bear this child, and Blood to prove that his love for Echo transcended his own demonic and predatory nature.

This happened, some say, with great difficulty; for after nine days of travail the goddess of childbirth Ilithyia had not yet arrived, since she was kept in heaven by the envy of Hera.
