AJYSYT

Yakut Childbirth Goddess

Also known as Aisyt, Aysyt, Ajyhyt

Comforting Mother Goddess of Childbirth and Fate

She is a good one to know if you are a pregnant mom. Ajysyt is a midwife deity who cares for you during birth-giving. When the contractions start, concentrate on her and she will ease the burden of your pain. A very necessary service if epidurals are not available.

She keeps the Golden Book of Fate containing everyone’s personal details. Your baby is registered and issued with a soul at birth. During labor, she guides the new soul to its rightful place and generally ensures a smooth, trouble-free birth.

For baby after-care, Ajysyt also blesses the mother’s milk. Breast is best. Highly recommended by the Yakut mothers of Siberia.
