Ancient Egyptians worshipped two goddesses associated with childbirth.

One was Heqet, the frog-headed goddess. Women who were about to give birth often wore frog-shaped amulets in her honor so she might make their labor less painful.


The other goddess was Taweret, who was depicted as a pregnant hippopotamus with a crocodile tail and a lion's mane totally ferocious.
