CIHUACOATL (pronounced see-wah-co-AH-tl) is the Aztec Goddess of earth and fertility. She is the patron of midwives and took charge of the souls of women who died in childbirth. These souls were called "cihuateteo" after the Goddess, and they were said to haunt crossroads where they waited to steal children. Cihuacoatl helped Quetzalcoatl in creating humanity by mixing the ground bones of earlier peoples with the blood of the old Gods. Her name means "snake woman" and is also seen as CIHUHCOATL or CIUCOATL.
