She is the all-over Mother Goddess responsible for baby welfare from the womb onwards — or should it be outwards?
Helping with the delivery service are her three daughters, Sarakka, Juksakka and Uksakka, who help choose baby names and prevent nappy rash. And she is married to Maderatcha who doles out the souls for the little darlings.
Together, they all help when it comes to inspiration for baby names. (Which one of them was responsible for the name Acker Bilk?)
