Gods Who Protect Infants and Children
« on: January 01, 2014, 06:28:59 pm »
Who are our Gods and Goddesses Who protect infants and children, or are the Gods of infants and children? Could perhaps Khnum be One since He does create humans and place them in the mother's womb? Who are some Others?

Taweret and Bes, for sure. Also Bast as a protector. You could probably consider any Goddess who mythologically protected Heru-sa-Aset as a child as a protector of children in general, so add Wadjet, Serqet, Aset.

Heqat is also over children in the womb.

I know Hethert and Bes are both said to protect mothers and their children (I usually assume this extends to fathers who are the primary caretakers of children as well).

I thought that Sekhmet protected children as well.
