Alongside Bes and Taweret, pregnant ladies and babies in ancient Egypt had one more special friend: Heqat. She's got a frog head, and to be honest, she's a little scary with those big knives. But you can be sure that Heqat will keep you safe from any illness, whether you're a mother or a child. When she's not minding the nursery, sometimes Heqat's working the dating scene, helping men and women fall in love. Maybe so she'll have more babies to take care of? Whatever works.
